I am trying myself in functions right now to make my code shorter. Unfortunetly when I ran the code I get a name error with the variable I want to calculate in the function.
My goal is to calculate the row number depending on the value of the cycle variable.
def row_number_calculater(cycle): if 1 <= cycle <= + 40: row = 0 elif 41 <= cycle <= 80: row = 1 elif 81 <= cycle <= 120: row = 2 return row
later in the code I use the function like this ( this is just a cut out of the code):
for i in data: cycle +=1 row_number_calculater(cycle) if i == "noop": if ((cycle-1)-(row*wide)) == X or ((cycle-1)-(row*wide)) == (X-1) or ((cycle-1)-(row*wide)) == (X+1): Picture[row][(cycle-1)-(row*wide)] = "#" else: Picture[row][(cycle-1)-(row*wide)] = "."
Anyway I get the a Name error for row. Now I wonder what I missunderstand in how the functions work… because somehow it does not safe the variable row that I can work with it later on.
I am happy for any help!
You are not storing the value of the row when calling the func, use:
row = row_number_calculater(cycle)
