Help with passing the arguments.
This program is supposed to ask for how many numbers do you want. I would stick with ten. Then how many numbers in a randrange (upper limit) Please choose 100
After a list is generated it is supposed to sort the numbers and look for a certain number. The print statement is not necessary I was just doing that for testing. It keeps crashing on the OSS function. So basically I am having trouble with passing arguments.
from random import randrange import time def main(): print "Choose how many numbers you want" print "Numbers must be less than upper limit" h_nums = input("How many numbers do you want: ") r_nums = input("Please input upper range limit: ") createRandnums(h_nums,r_nums) f_num = input("What number are you looking for. Stay within range: ") start = time.clock() oss(h_nums, f_num) elapsed = (time.clock() - start) print elapsed def createRandnums(num1,num2): alist =  for i in range(num1): total = randrange(1,num2,1) alist.append(total) print alist return alist def oss(alist, item): pos = 0 found = False stop = False while pos < len(alist) and not found and not stop: if alist[pos] == item: found = True else: if alist[pos] > item: stop = True else: pos = pos+1 return found main()
