Using Databases in Python - command line menu

Kenneth Love


I've just completed the "Our Diary App" section of the "Using Databases in Python" course where you use OrderedDict to create a command line menu.

This was very interesting and useful etc. but I wondered why you used this method instead of using the cmd module which would do pretty much the same thing.

Apologies if you cover this in the last part of the course, which I haven;t got to yet.
