I'm trying to create a vertical histogram using only built-in modules. I understand the current histogram function isn't truly a histogram (and the code is probably very ugly), but I'm totally lost on how to create a vertical histogram.
import itertools def histogram(s): print("Histogram:") print("%s %7s %12s" % ( "No.", "Value", "Histogram" )) for num, count in (s): print("%3d %7d %s" % (num, count, "*" * count)) text = "Sample text for this example." word_list =  word_seq =  text = text.strip() for punc in ".,;:!?'-&()" + '"' + '/': text = text.replace(punc, "") words = text.lower().split() for word in words: word_count = len(word) word_list.append(word_count) word_list.sort() for key, iter in itertools.groupby(word_list): word_seq.append((key, len(list(iter)))) histogram(word_seq)
Any help is greatly appreciated.
