n = [1, 7, 14, 16,19]x = raw_input()if x in n: print "match"else: print "no match"
How can I get this to work correctly ?
Raw_input is python 2.7, it has been replaced with 'input' in python 3.x, so substitute as needed.
The reason why it isn't working is that the return value is always a string, and you are trying to see if it is within a list of numbers.... note the type conversion in the following example.
a = [1, 2, 3, 4]x = input('input please ') # raw_input in python 2.7input please 1 # here I put in a number 1x # to confirm'1' # but it is a string... what to dueif int(x) in a: # a type conversion perhaps print(True)else: print(False) True # all is good
Thanks, it works perfect now.
I don't know why I missed that.
Now to try and figure out a way to save this as standalone tool.
