Battle Ship Python - computer guesses for the user


Hi Codecademy,

The computer guesses on behalf of the user for the column guess. Is there something wrong with the compiler?

This is my code:


from random import randint

board = []

for x in range(0,5):
board.append([“O”] * 5)

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

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)

Add your code below!

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


The computer doesn’t do this. The guesses are correct, but you print the ship coordinates, not the user guess.
