I'm trying to do a code where is generates a random string, but I have only just started coding so I don't want anything to the code to be too complicated.
import random, string
randomthing = random.choice(string)
string module does not have
len you might want to try this.
rand_str = lambda n: ''.join([random.choice(string.lowercase) for i in xrange(n)]) # Now to generate a random string of length 10 s = rand_str(10)
random.choice returns a single character and 10 such characters are joined using the
lambda n : ... creates a lambda function which takes
n as the argument.
''.join(sequence) joins a sequence into a string with empty string (
'' ) between them i.e. it simply joins characters into words.
'.'.join(['a','b','c']) will for example, return
