Posts I've Made

  1. In Topic: Implementations of markdown parsers that can produce HTML

    Posted 9 Jun 2015

    you basically have to write a parser that will read it and intelligently substitute symbols. It's easy to make a simple one, but a robust one that will always work would take a bit more time and effort.
  2. In Topic: is it possible to print an integer variable into a text string?

    Posted 9 Jun 2015

    So, a couple of things. Firstly, I personally don't like printing in this style
    print("ok,so the bill was " , bill , " thanks")
    because the commas add extra whitespace.

    Secondly, this is perfectly acceptable
    print("ok,so the bill was " + bill + " thanks")
    However, if 'bill' is not a string, it'll break, as the OP would have experienced.

    The workaround for that would be
    print("ok,so the bill was " + str(bill) + " thanks")
    which should work most of the time.

    Granted, I don't particularly like any of these approaches. It's a shame no one ever wrote a handy Python String formatting tutorial that would walk you through how it works more properly. Maybe someday...
  3. In Topic: local variable 'ballx' referenced before assignment

    Posted 30 May 2015

    def ball(x,y):

    There is no value called ballx or bally. However, there are values called x and y. Try
    def ball(x,y):
    You make the same type of mistake numerous times, so you'll need to make a lot of changes to fix it.
  4. In Topic: change the 12 hours time in object

    Posted 30 May 2015

    View Postmark103, on 30 May 2015 - 09:39 AM, said:

    It will let me to change the time to 30 mins back, e.g: from `1:30AM` to `1:00AM`. When I have the time `1:00AM`, it will not find the strings of `1:00AM` to change it to `12:30PM`. The reason for this is because I have two different type of `AM` and `PM`.

    Can you please show me an example of how can I find the time between AM and PM before changing the strings in the object to the time that I actually want?

    Sooo... you just want to know if the time is AM or PM? Like this?
    if self.getControl(344).getLabel()[-2] == "P":
        #PM stuff
        #AM stuff

    Honestly, I'm baffled as to what you're trying to ask.
  5. In Topic: Trying to make a program that loops from one menu to another.

    Posted 28 May 2015

    i don't think anyone, at any point, advocated writing a class for this. Are you just copying and pasting stuff you find online? You can't be a programmer if you don't understand what these statements are doing. Read a book, like this one, if you want to start advancing your skills. Right now, you're setting yourself up for complete failure.

    we have forums for a reason, please use those rather than posting on my profile.
    My profile wall is not a forum... especially not a Java one.

    Hey atraub, thanks for the add. I've been floating round the python forum for a while.
    I have exams all week though and then next week I can start my Django project! Which means a hell of a lot of forum questions no doubt!
    I saw your tutorial in linked lists, it looked great, I'll get more time to read it later when I'm not so tired :)
