Umm. what???

It seems like I am completely missing the point here, and I totally do not understand what to code or make here?

Can someone give me a clue?

class Letter:
    def __init__(self, pattern=None):
        self.pattern = pattern

class __str__(self, pattern)
    for item in pattern:
        if item = ".":
            composed += "dot-"
            composed += "dash-"
    return composed

class S(Letter):
    def __init__(self):
        pattern = ['.', '.', '.']

You're pretty close, but you have a syntax (and one logic) errors:

  • when defining a method, use the word "def" instead of "class"
  • a method (or class) definition line should end with a colon (:)
  • to be considered part of the (Letter) class, the entire method must be indented
  • "pattern" is part of the class, it won't be passed as an argument
  • a single "=" is an assignment operator, an equality test is "=="
  • you'll need to remove the trailing dash from the last element (a slice might be handy)
