Subject: [Tutor] Print List

I am trying to complete the following below:

You also need to write a function "printList" of one parameter that

takes a list as its input

[Terrence Brannon] since it is taking a list as its input, why not call it students or simply list? Calling it "lists" implies that it is a list that contains other lists

and neatly prints the entire contents of the

list in a column. Each student in the list should be printed using __str__.

So far i have:

def printList(lists):

    print("First Name\tLast Name\tCredits\tGPA")

    for i in lists:

        print (i)

Any Suggestions or Corrections?

[Terrence Brannon]

def print_list(students):

    for student in students:

       print("{0}\t{1}\t{2}\t{3}".format(student.first_name, student.last_name, student.credits, student.gpa))

OHHH.... Wait a minute... that means you need to redefine the __str__() method of your Student class:

class Student(object):


 def __str__(self):

    return "{0}\t{1}\t{2}\t{3}".format(student.first_name, student.last_name, student.credits, student.gpa)

And then print_list is simply:

def print_list(students):

    for student in students:

       print student
