Python troubles (classes, SUPER BASIC)
So I was messing around with python classes and I had trouble understanding it, this is what I came up with
class Forest: def temperature (self,temperature): self.temperature=temperature def displayTemp (self): return self.temperature def saying(self): print "This soup is %s" % self.displayTemp first=Forest() second=Forest() third=Forest() first.temperature('too cold.') second.temperature('warm.') third.temperature('too hot.') temperature=input("1~10; How hot is the soup? ") int(temperature) if (temperature<=3): first.saying elif (temperature==4,5,6): second.saying else: third.saying
the goal was for it to ask a question like "1~10; How hot is the soup? " and then you put in a number (1-3 = too cold; 4-6 warm; 7-10 too hot) but instead of calling back the response it doesn't do anything.
I'm totally new to python and I have looked around but my lack of understanding makes it harder for me and I read a couple things here on what I thought it might be, but no luck.
Your code has several problems.
By itself first.saying is just a reference to the function object; you need parentheses to actually call it: first.saying(), second.saying(), etc. You need to do the same with self.displayTemp().
Also, int(temperature) doesn't change the value of temperature; it returns a new value that is converted to int. If you want to replace the old value, you need to do temperature = int(temperature).
Also temperature==4,5,6 won't do what you seem to want. You need to do something like 4 <= temperature <= 6.
You should read the Python tutorial to get familiar with the basics of Python.
