This works now...
y = self.y + self.gravity
y = max(y, 0)
self.y = min(y, height - 1)
I don't think the self comes up as frequently as it may seem in well
And in the above, self is written once, but the other names y and gravity
are repeated again. So the gain isn't as great as it may seem at first.
What would this do?
def __init__(self, red, blue, green):
self red, blue green
red = red
blue = blue
green = green
If the names are long, it would take more characters than the equivalent
version using self.
