I want to create a simple counter so i created this function:
count = 0 def add(count): count += 1 print(count)
and if re-called the count goes up to 1 but if I recall it again it stays at 1.
I also tried to output the count variable outside of the function after recalling it but that led to a constant output of 0
count variable in your function has a different scope to the
count variable in the rest of your script. Modifying the former does not affect the latter.
You would need to do something like:
def add(count): count += 1 print(count) return count count = 0 count = add(count) count = add(count)
