In the program be below, I'M having trouble with these few lines, remember, I'M new.
What's going on here? I'M just a little confused because there is (word) wraped in len().
position = random.randrange(len(word))
And what's going on with these two lines? Thanks.
jumble += word[position] word = word[:position] + word[(position + 1):]
# Word Jumble # # The computer picks a random word and then "jumbles" it # The player has to guess the original word import random # create a sequence of words to choose from WORDS = ("python", "jumble", "easy", "difficult", "answer", "xylophone") # pick one word randomly from the sequence word = random.choice(WORDS) # create a variable to use later to see if the guess is correct correct = word # create a jumbled version of the word jumble = "" while word: position = random.randrange(len(word)) jumble += word[position] word = word[:position] + word[(position + 1):] # start the game print \ """ Welcome to Word Jumble!

""" print "The jumble is:", jumble guess = raw_input("\nYour guess: ") guess = guess.lower() while(guess != correct) and (guess != ""): print "Sorry, that's not it." guess = raw_input("Your guess: ") guess = guess.lower() if guess == correct: print "That's it! You guessed it!\n" print "Thanks for playing." raw_input("\n\nPress the enter key to exit.")
