Now it is time to pick up the pace and start asking question to user. You are doing a lot of printing to get you familiar with typing simple things, but those simple things are fairly boring. What we want to do now is get data into your programs. This is a little tricky because you have to learn to do two things that may not make sense right away but trust me and do it anyway. It will make sense in a few exercises.
Most of what software does is the following:
- Take some kind of input from a person.
- Change it.
- Print out something to show how it changed.
So far you have been printing strings, but you haven’t been able to get any input from a person. You may not even know what “input” means, but type this code in anyway and make it exactly the same. In the next exercise we’ll do more to explain input. Let’s see a code (Just copy, past and run).
print ("Hello Now I want some input from you")
Name = input("What is your name? ")
age = input("What is your age? ")
print ("Hello %s your age is %s" % (Name,age))
print ("Hello What is your Name")
Name = input()
print ("Hello %s Please tell me your age" % (Name))
age = input()
print ("%s Can you update me your birth month" % (Name), end=" ")
mnth = input()
print ("Day", end = " ")
day = input()
print ("year", end=" ")
year = input()
print ("\n\n\nDetails entered by you are \nName %s\nAge %s\nBirth date(m-d-y) %s-%s-%s" % (Name, age, mnth,day,year))
