I need some help for a program I am writing as a newbie to Python.
I have created a series:
WORDS = ("python", "program", "code", "xylophone")
and then assigned one of them randomly to the variable 'word':
word = random.choice(WORDS)
I know that if I do:
The randomly chosen word will be displayed. I also know that if I type:
I will get the corresponding word back. But how do I find 'programaticaly'
the index number for the string that random.choice has chosen?
The reason I ask is that I an writing a simple word jumble game and need to
link the randomly chosen word to a hint should the user need one.
