Here is my input:
print 'Welcome to the Pig Latin Translator!' name = raw_input("What is your name? ") print name original = raw_input("Enter a word please: ") if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha(): print original if len(original) > 0 and not original.isalpha(): print "Excuse me?" else: print "empty"
When I interact with the console, the output is this:
Welcome to the Pig Latin Translator!
What is your name? Ariel
Enter a word please: cow
The only way I have been able to remedy this improper output of the word “empty” is by changing the else statement to another “if” statement:
if len(original) < 0: print "Empty"
But, I am frustrated because the lesson specifically asks me to use the “else” statement. I’m very confused as to why this output of both the original word and “empty” is occurring.
I know I have a couple additions to my code and I have seen some people claim that if you don’t follow the lesson exactly, you may not see the proper results. I have also tried running my code without the small additions, and it makes no difference.
