A couple of points:  Its best to cut and paste your code directly into
your email text.  And use plaintext, not rtf (emails with different
fonts, etc.)  This way your code will be exactly what you typed.  You
should say which version of python.  I don't know what python(x,y)
means, but python 3.4 or 2.7 is useful information.

If you feel that the code used to work, but doesn't now, then how
about the data file?  Has the data you are studying changed?
