range() function in python counts from 0 up to the index included in parentheses, that means
range(5) counts out
[0, 1, 2 , 3, 4]
This is causing an issue with my battleship program because now whenever I enter the number 5 into the console as a guess I get my "Oops, that’s not even in the ocean message.
Any fixes? even when I change all three ranges to 6 it changes nothing.
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_board(board) def random_row(board): return randint(0, len(board) - 1) def random_col(board): return randint(0, len(board) - 1) ship_row = random_row(board) ship_col = random_col(board) print ship_row print ship_col 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 sank my battleship!" else: if guess_row not in range(5) or \ guess_col not in range(5): 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_board(board)```
