In the context of this exercise, what is control flow?
Control flow is the concept of how a sequence of steps in a program flows, or runs from start to finish. The flow of a program can be dependent on factors such as the results of conditional statements, which utilize
if/else if/else statements.
For example, we might have a Python program that prints out some message depending on the input value of the user. It will first run the
try block code, and if the user input is not valid (not a numerical value) and brings up an error, then it will run the
except block instead.
try: age = int(raw_input("Enter your age:")) if age < 18: print("You must be 18 or over to enter the race") else: print("You can enter the race") except: print("The inputted age was invalid")
