When to use "del" ?
When is useful to apply the "del" function in a Python program?
Jennifer NordellTreehouse Teacher
According to the Python documentation del is not a function but rather a statement built-in to Python to handle data structures. You can find more information here.
As a further clarification question, you'd really only use del in the Python shell right? You'd never see it otherwise?
