Help? Works in Workspaces, not in challenge

Hi, I think my code is right. This is the challenge: "OK, here's a...weird...set of tiles. I need you to loop through TILES and print out each item. Print each item on the same line unless the item is a double pipe (||). In that case, instead of printing the item, print a new line (\n). Use the end argument to print() to control whether things print on a new line or not." And the code out of workspaces should be right. The functions in workspaces and the challenge are completely the same.

mapping.py
TILES = ('-', ' ', '-', ' ', '-', '||',
         '_', '|', '_', '|', '_', '|', '||',
         '&', ' ', '_', ' ', '||',
         ' ', ' ', ' ', '^', ' ', '||'
)
for item in TILES:
    if item == "||":
        print("\n")
    else:
        print(item, end=" ")

:warning: Be careful about testing a challenge in the workspace.

If you have misunderstood the challenge, it's also very likely that you will misinterpret the results.

In this case, it looks like you have two issues:

  • print an empty string to get a new line — printing an explicit newline will get an extra blank line
  • to print things next to each other, set end to an empty string.
