# 17/19 'break' outside loop

#1

What's wrong with the code?

from random import randint

board = []

for x in range(5):
board.append(["O"] * 5)

def print_board(board):
for row in board:
print " ".join(row)

print "Let's play Battleship!"
print_board(board)

def random_row(board):
return randint(0, len(board) - 1)

def random_col(board):
return randint(0, len(board[0]) - 1)

ship_row = random_row(board)
ship_col = random_col(board)
print ship_row
print ship_col

# Be sure to indent four spaces!

guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))

if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
print "Congratulations! You sunk my battleship!"
break

else:
if (guess_row < 0 or guess_row > 4) or (guess_col < 0 or guess_col > 4):
print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
elif(board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X"):
print "You guessed that one already."
else:
print "You missed my battleship!"
board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
print "turn", turn + 1
# Print (turn + 1) here!

for turn in range(4):
if turn == 3:
print "Game Over"
print_board(board)

Take care to keep the code intact when you post it.

What does the `break` keyword do?

It's telling you that your `break` is outside any loop, if you look at your code, do you agree with that?

i am having the same problem. No matter where I put break - I get the same "outside the loop" error message -

guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))

if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
print "Congratulations! You sunk my battleship!"
break

Hi I had the same problem. "outside the loop" error.
The idea of break is that it can be made only in a loop.
In this case that`s must be for turn in range(4) loop:

for turn in range(4):
print "Turn", turn + 1
guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))
if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
print "Congratulations! You sunk my battleship!"
board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
break

in other way there is nothing to break.
I think instruction from 15/19 is not clear, I understood all after reading this:
