calling functions

was just wondering why we need to call the functions (in this exercise; show_help() and show_list() before/after random blocks of code?

1 Answer

Jasmin Mattiaccio Whenever you call the show_help function, it will print help instructions and show_list function will print list of items in the shopping list. It is not a random call but it is called whenever required as per the app functionality.
