(Python code 3.0)
I have been trying to make it that when you the number it will loop around, I tried this:
If guess==num: #this is randomly generated number
ask for yes or no the playagain
if answer==yes
replay=1
play_guess==0
if replay=1 play=("yes")
however this does not work, please could you suggest how I could accomplish this!

import random
import time
play_guess=("yes")
print("""                 Welcome to the game \"Crack the code!\"""")
print("""         The code has been set to a random number between 0 and 1000""")
print("""         Try and guess the code in the fewest attempts possible.""")
while play_guess==("yes"):
    turn=0
    difinput=input("""

                    -------------------------------
                   | Enter your chosen difficulty. |
                   |Easy,Medium,Unknown,Hard,Insane|

There is code snippet here in Daniweb by Gribouillis if you really want what your title says:
http://www.daniweb.com/software-development/python/code/260268

This statement is always True (same as 1)

>>> not 0 or 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 or 7 or 8 or 9
True
>>> not 0 or 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 or 7 or 8 or 9 in (1,)
True
>>> not 0 or 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 or 7 or 8 or 9 in (0,)
True

So it is more clear to write:

while True:

Second part of condition does no difference as or short cuts on True.
