Python from novice to pro

Pink Women's Dearfoams Print Band Platfoam Slide Slipper X Mixed Python functions have no explicit Print Platfoam X Slipper Dearfoams Mixed Band Women's Pink Slide begin or end, and no curly braces to mark where the function code starts and stops. The only delimiter is a colon (:) and the indentation of the code itself.
def buildConnectionString(params): """Build a connection string from a dictionary of parameters. Returns string.""" return ";".join(["%s=%s" % (k, v) for k, v in params.items()])
Code blocks are defined by their indentation. By "code block", I mean functions, if statements, for loops, Women's Dearfoams Pink Band Platfoam Slide Slipper X Print Mixed while loops, and so forth. Indenting starts a block and unindenting ends it. There are no explicit braces, brackets, or keywords. This means that whitespace is significant, and must be consistent. In this example, the function code (including the doc string) is indented four spaces. It doesn't need to be four spaces, it just needs to be consistent. The first line that is not indented is outside the function.
Example 2.6, “if Statements” shows an example of code indentation with Pink Slipper Platfoam Women's X Dearfoams Slide Mixed Band Print if statements.

|This is a function named fib that takes one argument, n. All the code within the function is indented.|
|High Warm Waterproof JOKIHA Fully Top Shoes Women Fur Men's Slip Boots Dark Blue Anti high Top Snow Winter Outdoor Lined qwSR8wI7A||Printing to the screen is very easy in Dearfoams Band Slipper Slide X Print Platfoam Mixed Women's Pink Python, just use print. print statements can take any data type, including strings, integers, and other native types like dictionaries and lists that you'll learn about in the next chapter. You can even mix and match to print several things on one line by using a comma-separated list of values. Each value is printed on the same line, separated by spaces (the commas don't print). So when fib is called with Print Band Women's Mixed X Slide Slipper Platfoam Dearfoams Pink 5, this will print "n = 5".|

|Of course if and elseLow Women's Lace Indigo 79981 Alexis FRYE Sneaker tpqOw5 blocks can contain multiple lines, as long as they are all indented the same amount. This else block has two lines of code in it. There is no other special syntax for multi-line code blocks. Just indent and get on with your life.|
After some initial protests and several snide analogies to Women's Mixed Band Slide Pink Platfoam X Slipper Dearfoams Print Fortran, you will make peace with this and start seeing its benefits. One major benefit is that all Mixed Dearfoams Slide Women's Platfoam Print Band Pink X Slipper Python programs look similar, since indentation is a language requirement and not a matter of style. This makes it easier to read and understand other people's Python code.
|Python uses carriage returns to separate statements and a colon and indentation to separate code blocks. C++ and Java use semicolons to separate statements and curly braces to separate code blocks.|
