Hey guys

Andrew here, with another problem.

My while loop is made so that it is on, or off, simple eh? That's what I thought, but it doesn't seem to be acting as I would expect it to!

The problem is, when I want it to loop, in testing it didn't loop, which is a problem!

This is my code:

print "HOW MANY VARIABLES WOULD YOU LIKE?"
print "2"
print "3"
print "4"
print "5"
print "6"
print "7"
print "8"
print "9"
print "10"
print "--------------------------------------------------------------------------------"
MainLoop = 1
while MainLoop == 1:
    variables = raw_input (" ")
    if variables == "2":
        name1 = raw_input ("NAME YOUR FIRST VARIABLE ")
        time.sleep(1)
        name2 = raw_input ("NAME YOUR SECOMD VARIABLE ")
        time.sleep(1)
        print "--------------------------------------------------------------------------------"
        NameInHat = raw_input ("PLEASE PRESS ENTER TO PICK YOUR RANDOM VARIABLE ")
        loop = 1
        while loop == 1:
            randomg = random.randint(1, 2)
            if randomg == 1:
                print name1
            elif randomg == 2:
                print name2

            end = raw_input ("WOULD YOU LIKE TO FINISH? ")
            if end == "YES" or "yes" or "y" or "Y":
                loop = 2
            elif end == "no" or "NO" or "n" or "N":
                print " "
        print "THANK YOU USING MY APP."
        menu = raw_input ("WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO BACK TO THE MENU? ")
        if menu == "no" or "NO" or "n" or "N":
            MainLoop = 2
            exit
        elif menu == "YES" or "yes" or "y" or "Y":
            print " "

Hope this is fixable. And could someone also provide an explanation as to why it isn't working, and how they fixed it!

What happens when "variables != '2'" ?

## Three variables
print "HOW MANY VARIABLES WOULD YOU LIKE?"
for ctr in range(3):
    print ctr+1

names_list=["FIRST", "SECOND", "THIRD"]
MainLoop = 1
while MainLoop == 1:
    name_of_variables=[]
    variables = raw_input ("Enter Variables ")
    for ctr in range(int(variables)):
        name = raw_input ("NAME YOUR %s VARIABLE " % (names_list[ctr]))
        name_of_variables.append(name)

    ## exit testing while() loop
    MainLoop = 0

print name_of_variables

Oh I have all of that, it is essentially, variable 1 copied, and adding a third possible variable!

instead of confusing while MainLoop == 1 you can use:

while True:
    '''do stuff'''
    break
