Hi, I am fairly new to Python. I am familiar with the concept to pass data accross functions.
def c(): r = raw_input("Ask Something? ") .. return r def p(x): ... do something r = c() p(r)
The code below works just fine via Terminal ( python filename.py file.txt ), but I want to add workflow where a variable stores the path to the file and passes it to the function ( processFile ). I just cant get the data / value passed to the function.
This is the code I am trying to edit :
def registerException(exc): exceptions[exc] += 1 def processFile(x): with open(x, "r") as fh: currentMatch = None lastLine = None addNextLine = False for line in fh.readlines(): if addNextLine and currentMatch != None: addNextLine = False currentMatch += line continue match = REGEX.search(line) != None if match and currentMatch != None: currentMatch += line elif match: currentMatch = lastLine + line else: if currentMatch != None: registerException(currentMatch) currentMatch = None lastLine = line addNextLine = CONT.search(line) != None # If last line in file was a stack trace if currentMatch != None: registerException(currentMatch) for f in sys.argv[1:]: processFile(f) for item in sorted(exceptions.items(), key=lambda e: e, reverse=True): print item, ":", item
It doesnt matter if I declare the variable as Global or local. Could someone please help me solve this issue?
