Issue with PygLatin - Input


#1



I don't understand why it doesn't accept my code in the "Input" exercise.


Every time I tried it send me this error message:
Did you create a variable called original?
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "python", line 4, in
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 14: ordinal not in range(128)


print("Bienvenue dans le traducteur francais - Pyg Latin !")
original = raw_input("Entrez un mot à traduire:")


I'm french, that's why the sentences are in french.


#2

Ok, it seems that my code work now. I have absolutely no idea why it didn't.
Thanks anyway.


#3

Unfortunately, there is a bug that prevents the accented à character from being accepted. As a workaround, use a instead.

The original Python track may get replaced in the near future, and hopefully the new one will not have the same bug.


#4

I agree, I just realized it was that. Maybe you must add the coding utf-8 in the courses. Thanks a lot !


#5

Do you have it working with the à character still there? If so, then good; that would mean that the bug has been fixed.


#6

No I deleted the character to make it work. The bug still here.


#7

I have tried adding the UTF-8 encoding to code by using the appropriate header, but it breaks Codecademy's submission correctness test (SCT). Perhaps Codecademy will deal with this in the future version of the course.


#8

C'est dommage. ... :disappointed:
