In the pyglatin exercise I wrote the following:
raw_input("Enter a word: ")
output = raw_input
and the module accepted it as passing the exercise. However when I attempted to then count the int of either output or raw_input with the following I got an error saying something about the built in function raw_input:
if len(original) > 0:
Now when I try it the code runs, but doesn’t seem to work! It tells me the len of the first word I put in, even if I rerun it and try entering no characters.
Can anyone explain what is happening here?
When I change the first line to this, it seems to work fine:
original = raw_input("Enter a word: ")
why can’t I do a raw_input and then assign the result of raw_input to a variable?
