Problem with line break


It is showing this error code:
File "python", line 36
if (guess_row < 0 or guess_row > 4) or \
SyntaxError: unexpected character after line continuation character

The line break should work, but it is not.

from random import randint

board = []

for x in range(5):
    board.append(["O"] * 5)

def print_board(board):
    for row in board:
        print " ".join(row)

print "Let's play Battleship!"

def random_row(board):
    return randint(0, len(board) - 1)

def random_col(board):
    return randint(0, len(board[0]) - 1)

ship_row = random_row(board)
ship_col = random_col(board)
print ship_row
print ship_col

for turn in range(4):
# Everything from here on should go in your for loop!
# Be sure to indent four spaces!
    guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
    guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))

    if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
        print "Congratulations! You sunk my battleship!"
        if (guess_row < 0 or guess_row > 4) or \  
        (guess_col < 0 or guess_col > 4):
        print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
    elif(board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X"):
        print "You guessed that one already."
        print "You missed my battleship!"
        board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
    # Print (turn + 1) here!
    print "Turn", (turn +1)


I suggest you take another look at your indentations here. Since your last few statements are nested inside the else:, the indentation should reflect that. Then, the line break should work.

Your last elif and else should be aligned with your if and your print statements should be further indented.


Actually, that helped a lot it was an indentation error with the print statement. Thank you!
