sys.exit code not working?
Can anyone give me a tip on why this code isn't working? From the guidelines, I feel like I am giving exactly what is needed. What am I missing?
import sys def start_movie(): input('Do you want to start the movie? Y/n').lower() if input == 'n': sys.exit() else: print("Enjoy the show!")
Hey Alex! Your close, but you have a couple of issues. One is that you dont need to define this as a function, just write the code. Secondly is that an input will return the value that it recived, so you cant say:
input("Input something") if input == "whatever"
Input is never the same as something, instead you should store the returned value from input in a variable, and then check if that variable is the same as "whatever". So your final code should look something like:
import sys returned_value = input('Do you want to start the movie? Y/n').lower() #Added a variable for whatever input returns if returned_value == 'n': sys.exit() else: print("Enjoy the show!")
Hope this helps!
