Why then did you start a new thread, instead of responding on the same
one?  You didn't even use the same subject string.

That won't work.  "0" or "1"  is just "0"     So you're searching for
the character zero.

See the other thread you started, with subject
    "[Tutor] finding a number with str.find"
