I have been reading today about creating and using Sets. I have tried some sample code to see the results and I think it might be useful for me.
I am in search of a data type that will be able to store strings and\ or values culled from a program variable. I then will need to be able to search\ test this group of values for particular values using an IF statement (I think :confused:) If a particular, unique value already exists (which will be legal in my program) then the program will have to create a new, unique value (this will repeat until a unique number is within the Set, or rather, until a number registers as unique and is not repeated) This is simply something to test for repeated values in an unordered grouping.
I really wonder what you think: is a Python Set the best data type for this procedure? What about a tuple?
**Also, please note, I graduted 1-year ago from University where I studied Python but never used it much. This is not for homework, just practice projects preparing me a bit more for an upcoming job.
