Code works, but doesn't check for errors in input


#1

PygLatin


The request is to check that the user entered a valid word, my code doesn't do that, it just accepts the input without checking.


I would like to know, is there a way to check for a valid word? If it is not required, then why does the section request it?


word = raw_input('Enter an English word:')
pyg = 'ay'
first = word[0]
piglatin = word[1:len(word)]+first+pyg
print piglatin

This is not a challenge but an exercise where we must follow the instructions, explicitly. In the third or fourth step you will cover simple validation of inputs.

Cheers, I don't think I followed the exercise and did treat it like a test.

Strange thing, I realised my problem almost immediately after posting, but I couldn't delete post.
