New to python here… is my code still salvageable? Here’s a snippet of me trying to find the amount of times a letter in the alphabet (both upper and lower case) shows up in a text paragraph. This code successfully works for making two separate lists of lower and upper case letters, but I’m trying to merge them into one. I thought I could input a def merge() but it didn’t work and I have a feeling I might have to start completely over.
small_letter_status = *26 capital_letter_status = *26 for x in txt: if x>='a' and x<='z': small_letter_status[ord(x)%ord('a')] += 1 elif x>='A' and x<='Z': capital_letter_status[ord(x)%ord('A')] += 1 print("nSmall Letter count") for x in range(len(small_letter_status)): print(chr(x+(ord('a'))), small_letter_status[x]) print("nCapital Letter count") for x in range(len(capital_letter_status)): print(chr(x+(ord('A'))), capital_letter_status[x])
You can simply merge lists using + operator
print([1, 2, 3] + [4, 5,6]) -> [1,2,3,4,5,6]
