If you are unfamiliar with indexing in programming languages, this is probably an easier way to visualize it than if you picture the indexes as aligned with the characters. Figure 1-1. Index positions in strings Attempting to extract a character before the first or after the last causes an error, as shown here: >>> 'MNKMDLVADVAEKTDLSKAKATEVIDAVFA'[50] Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 1, in 'MNKMDLVADVAEKTDLSKAKATEVIDAVFA'[50] IndexError: string index out of range The last line reports the nature of the error, while the next-to-last line shows the input that caused the error.

Don’t hesitate to use parentheses if you have any doubt about the interpretation of operation series. =, <, <=, >, >=) Membership (in, not in) Boolean not (not) Boolean and (and) Boolean or (or) Expressions | 17 Tips, Traps, and Tracebacks Tips • Don’t trust what you see! Everything printed out in a computing environment or by a programming language is an interpretation of an internal representation. The visible interpretation may not be what you anticipated, even though the internal representation is actually the result you expected.

A function’s body must contain at least one statement. The do-nothing statement that is equivalent to the no-value None is the simple statement pass. STATEMENT Do Nothing The pass statement does nothing. It is used as a placeholder in compound statements when you haven’t yet decided what to actually put there. pass 26 | Chapter 2: Names, Functions, and Modules A minimal function definition would therefore be: def fn(): pass Now fn can be called, though it does nothing and returns nothing: >>> fn() >>> Words such as def, return, and pass are known as keywords or, because programs cannot use them as names, reserved words.
