Why isn't this regex working?

Hey,

I really don't get whats wrong, because it should be working.

Maybe the site is broken, because the error:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "03aca599-6ce1-4cc6-a667-13ac394fed00.py", line 84, in success()""") File "", line 7, in TypeError: object of type 'function' has no len()

doesn't seem to have anything to do with the code.

Does anyone know if it's me or the site?

Thanks, Bruce.

Hi Bruce, We need to see your full code, especially line 84, it looks like you have a type error.Which means you may have an extra " or maybe missing a ')'. Can't tell you exactly unless I see the code.

That's the point, there's no line 84. The code is only 20 lines long or so. I thought it would be appended. gonna rewrite it and then add to the question.
