Python Question

Get key with the least value from a dictionary

If I have a Python dictionary, how do I get the key to the entry which contains the minimum value?

I was thinking about something to do with the

min()
function...

Given the input:

{320:1, 321:0, 322:3}


It would return
321
.

Answer

Best: min(d, key=d.get) -- no reason to interpose a useless lambda indirection layer or extract items or keys!
