I want it to ask the user to input their favorite film and it to add that input at the end of the list and then display the list again. as well as making sure the film entered is not in the least already. this is how far ive got up to :
films = ["Star Wars", "Lord of the Rings", "Shawshank Redemption", "God father"]
for films in films:
print ("%s" % films)
add = input("Please enter a film: ")
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "H:\Modules (Year 2)\Advanced programming\Python\Week 2 -
Review and Arrays\Week 2.2 - Exercises.py", line 48, in
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'append'
in to check whether the item is already present in list or not and then use
list.append to add that item to the end of the list.
add = input("Please enter a film: ") if add not in films: films.append(add)
Note that in the for-loop you've replaced
films with a string, use some other variable name:
for film in films: print ("%s" % film)
