I've added a print statement which should clarify what you are actually doing.

p = [1, 2, 0, -1, 3, 4, 5]
smaller = 0
bigger = 0
i = 0
while i < len(p):
print "comparing", p[1], p
if p[i] >= p:
bigger += 1
print bigger
i += 1

I think you want two for loops. Note that the logic is different if the list is sorted first.

stop = len(p)
for x in range(0, stop):
greater_list = []
for y in range(0, stop):
if p[x] < p[y]:
greater_list.append(p[y])
print p[x], "greater =", greater_list

Thanks I'm tryng to this.

Hey tonyjv, how to use your code? Is not working!

I'm using Python 2.6.4 and Linux.

And this code works so:

File "P.py", line 3
print [y in x if y>limit]
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Sorry typed it without testing from mobile 'y for' missing:

x = [1, 2, 10, -1, 3, 4, 5, 9, +66, 99, 88]
for limit in (-1,1,3):
print 'Limit',limit
data = [y for y in x if y>limit]
print "Data: %s, Len: %i, Sum: %.2f" % (data, len(data), sum(data))
