I have the line elif x == 1: in the code that I'm writing (as the second portion of an 'if loop'), but the interpreter is stating that that line is invalid.
File "python", line 9
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
I have tried using this line both with & without a space on each side of the equals operator '==' but that's made no difference. I have also checked a number of other online resources, but from all I have been able to determine, this syntax should be acceptable/correct.
(As far as indentation goes, it's indented identically with the other sections of the if loop, so I'm confident that's correct - along with the fact that -so far- the interpreter has always clearly indicated when indentation errors have been present.)
Is the elif statement/syntax somehow incorrect?
elif x == 1:
