I can't figure out what I am doing wrong on this section.. any hints? Here is my code: print 'Welcome to the Pig Latin Translator!' raw_input("Enter a word:") original = raw_input if len(original) > 0: print original else: print "empty" This is the error I am getting: Traceback (most recent call last): File "python", line 6, in <module> TypeError: object of type 'builtin_function_or_method' has no len()
this two lines:
raw_input("Enter a word:") original = raw_input
you can store the result of raw_input in original directly, so this should be one line of code.
Store users input in a variable. Like this:
original = raw_input("Enter a word:") if len(original) > 0: print original else: print "empty"
Check my profile if you need more help.
Ah it makes sense now! Thanks both, really helped
