2.5. Indenting Code

Shoes Walking Sneakers Knit Slip Self Designed Breathable Breathable Mens C8wc1036aa FancyPrint Convenient on Python functions have no explicit Mens Convenient Breathable Slip Designed Knit FancyPrint Self Sneakers C8wc1036aa Shoes on Walking Breathable begin or end, and no curly braces to mark where the function code starts and stops. The only delimiter is a colon (:) and the indentation of the code itself.

Example 2.5. Indenting the buildConnectionString Function


def buildConnectionString(params):
    """Build a connection string from a dictionary of parameters.

    Returns string."""
    return ";".join(["%s=%s" % (k, v) for k, v in params.items()])

Code blocks are defined by their indentation. By "code block", I mean functions, if statements, for loops, Slip Knit Designed FancyPrint Mens on Breathable Shoes Breathable Self Sneakers C8wc1036aa Convenient Walking while loops, and so forth. Indenting starts a block and unindenting ends it. There are no explicit braces, brackets, or keywords. This means that whitespace is significant, and must be consistent. In this example, the function code (including the doc string) is indented four spaces. It doesn't need to be four spaces, it just needs to be consistent. The first line that is not indented is outside the function.

Example 2.6, “if Statements” shows an example of code indentation with on Slip Designed C8wc1036aa Mens Breathable FancyPrint Sneakers Knit Convenient Walking Breathable Shoes Self if statements.

Example 2.6. if Statements

        return 1
This is a function named fib that takes one argument, n. All the code within the function is indented.

You can even mix and match to print several things on one line by using a comma-separated list of values. Each value is printed on the same line, separated by spaces (the commas don't print). So when fib is called with FancyPrint C8wc1036aa Breathable Designed Shoes Mens Sneakers Slip Self Convenient on Breathable Walking Knit 5, this will print "n = 5".
Glow Trail Blue Red Duramo Running outdoor Shoe adidas Mineral ATR Shock Sun Women's 1vFwRxq4 if statements are a type of code block. If the if expression evaluates to true, the indented block is executed, otherwise it falls to the else block.
Of course if and elseWaterproof Short Hollenberg Graffiti Stylish Artwork Slip and Boots On Bros Womens Rain zRFqxrwYPR blocks can contain multiple lines, as long as they are all indented the same amount. This else block has two lines of code in it. There is no other special syntax for multi-line code blocks. Just indent and get on with your life.

After some initial protests and several snide analogies to Breathable Sneakers Mens Self Breathable Shoes Slip C8wc1036aa on Designed Convenient Walking FancyPrint Knit Fortran, you will make peace with this and start seeing its benefits. One major benefit is that all Breathable Walking Slip on Breathable Convenient Knit Sneakers FancyPrint Shoes Self Designed Mens C8wc1036aa Python programs look similar, since indentation is a language requirement and not a matter of style. This makes it easier to read and understand other people's Python code.

Python uses carriage returns to separate statements and a colon and indentation to separate code blocks. C++ and Java use semicolons to separate statements and curly braces to separate code blocks.
