I don't think so. I don't have access to the web right now, but I do 
have access to email. And even if I did, I'm lazy and wouldn't follow 
links and then have to copy and paste from the website into my reply.

Since I'm donating my time for free, the least you can do is do the 
copying and pasting yourself.

I'm pretty sure that is not the actual error message you get. Are you 
sure it is not a NameError, rather than SyntaxError?

The kind of error you get, together with the error message, often gives 
you clues as to what is going on. Python goes to a huge amount of 
trouble to provide a useful and informative error message, instead of 
just saying "Error!" and leaving you to guess. So read the message: if 
it tells you that "val is not defined", then you have not defined a 
variable val.
