Nothing is printing to the console - I've checked my code several times, can't see anything wrong with it

Hi all,

I've followed the code in this video, and checked it several times, so am confident my code is correct, however, nothing prints to the console when I run the program, in either case for the indices.

Please could I have some help in understanding what the problem is?

My code is as follows:

def linear_search(list, target): """ Returns the index position of the target if found, else returns None """

```for i in range(0, len(list)):
if list[i] == target:
return i
return None

def verify(index):
if index is not None:
print("Target found at index: ", index)
else:

numbers = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10]

result = linear_search(numbers, 12)
verify(result)

result = linear_search(numbers, 6)
verify(result)
```

Many Thanks

Henry

From the above it looks like your for loop lines up with def verify. It needs to be indented

```def linear_search(list, target):
"""
Returns the index position of the target if found, else returns None
"""
for i in range(0, len(list)):
if list[i] == target:
return i
return None

def verify(index):
if index is not None:
print("Target found at index: ", index)
else:

numbers = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10]

result = linear_search(numbers, 12)
verify(result)

result = linear_search(numbers, 6)
verify(result)
```

Indeed - silly me, thank you! I need to readjust to this whole 'indentation' thing

Hey team,

I am using Javascript. How can I output to the console the result of my code?

I have tried: node linear_search.js and node linear_search but nothing returns.
