Only returns empty


#1



4. Check Yourself! PygLatin

I keep getting returned value of empty, even though i have inputted in value. Doesn't look right


Enter a word: running
empty
None


running


# Start coding here!
raw_input("Enter a word:")
    
original = ""

if len(original) > 0:
    print original

else:
    print "empty"


#2

raw_input prompts the user for input, you should store the result of this user prompt in a variable named original. Why would prompt the user then create a variable in which you store an empty string?


#3

Got it. Silly me (slap palm to forehead)

replaced with this line and it works perfectly
original = raw_input("Enter a word:")
