Hi there .... I've just joined this list and thought I'd introduce
myself. I used to be fairly competent in c but never made the grade to
c++. I've done very little programming in the last couple of years or
so. I'm getting a Raspberry-pi for our local Junior school and am
starting to learn Python so I can show the year five and year six kids
how to write simple games. I'm already enjoying this lovely language.
One of the few c things I miss is the switch/case statement. if and
elif in it's place is a bit cumbersome. Still, it works.
One of the things I wanted to do is to use a four integer array to get
four integers returned from a function. I ended up using what I think
is a list. (I'm not really sure of the datatypes yet). This is what I
did, and it works, but looks very inelegant to me:
correct = 0
match = 0
wrong = 0
results = [correct, match, wrong]
results = getflag(flag_1, results)
results = getflag(flag_2, results)
results = getflag(flag_3, results)
results = getflag(flag_4, results)
Kind regards, Barry.
