Only returns empty


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


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

if len(original) > 0:
    print original

    print "empty"


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?


Got it. Silly me (slap palm to forehead)

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