This is a completion of the first article Python Guide Part 1:
This article is about very basic and common input/output commands in python programming, as well as statements, itterator, import, and functions.

1/ Let’s start with input:

We use input (input or raw_input) functions to read from the keybord, here are some examples:

first_int = int(raw_input(“give me a number: “))
print first_int # this will print the number you entered
first_str = raw_input(“give me a string: “)
print first_str # this will print the string you just typed
type first_str # type string

2/ Now let’s move to the ouput formatting:

first_str = "this"
second_str = "string"
print first_str + second_str # Output: this string

#check this error
#first_str = “our number is : ”
#second_str = 5
#print first_str + second_str
#this will cause error because we can not concatenate a string object with an integer object

#Print Formatting: print “%format” % corresponding_data
first_str = “our number is : %d”
second_str = 5
print first_str %(second_str) # Output: our number is : 5

first_str = int(raw_input(“number : “))
second_str = int(raw_input(“number : “))
third_str = int(raw_input(“number : “))
print “You entered %dt%dt%d” %(first_str,second_str,third_str) # Output: You entered 1 2 3 (if you have typed 1,2,3)

3/import (importing a python module and use its functionalities)

#import (modulename.elementname)
import socket
a = socket.AF_INET


#if statement (it checks for the condition if it's true it will execute the statement)
First_bool = True
if First_bool:
print "True" # >>True
second_bool = False
if second_bool:
print "True" # >>Nothing to print on the screen
if second_bool:
print "True"
print "False" # >>False

5/ loop statement

#while Statement (the while loop statement repeatedly executes a target statement as long as a given condition is true)
First_bool = True
while (First_bool is True):
print "True" # >> True (infinite loop)
break # >> Stop the infinite loop

6/ loop statement

#for itterator (It has the ability to iterate over the items of any sequence, such as a list or a string)
list_word = ["this","is","a","list"] print list_word # >> ["this","is","a","list"]

for word in list_word:
print word # returns the word from list
print list_word, # returns the list as much as there are words in it
print word, # return this is a list

for i in range(10): #range is non-inclusif / 10 isn’t computed
print(i) # this will print numbers from 0 to 9

list_word = [“m”,”y”,”a”,”d”] for letter in list_word:
if letter == ‘a’ :
print “found a!”


#functions (function is a block of organized, reusable code that is used to perform a single, related action. They provide better modularity for the application and a high degree of code reusing)
def first_func():
print "hello world!"
first_func() # the function call and the output will be>> hello world!

# = assign value
# == compare egality
# != compare inegality
# <> greater than , smaller than
