I need to generate a string from random letters given in list take_from. The first time the function was executed it generated a phrase but all my following tries prompted an error "list index out of range". I can`t understand this error in my case and I tried while loop instead of for loop but it did not work either.
from random import randint
random_string = ''
take_from = ['a','b','c','d','e','f','g','h','i','j','k','l',
for i in range(28):
random_string = random_string + take_from[randint
In Python, lists are indexed with integers ranging from 0 to 1 less than the length of the list. E.g., a list with 10 items in it would have indexes from 0 to 9.
Your call to
randint() attempts to get indexes from zero to the full length of the list, which will cause this exception. Change it to:
for i in range(28): random_string = random_string + take_from[randint (0,len(take_from)-1)]
