Thanks! Share it with your friends!


This video goes over how to create a very simple currency converter script using Python 2.7.2. The software I am using to create the script is called Eclipse.

I tried this on notepad++ and my file wouldn't open

Dicky Allen says:

One other question… Suppose I had a very wordy statement that required a ton of text before getting a user's input. Seeing as staying on the same line of code would be annoying (to me at least), how would I do the n and skip lines in my code?

Dicky Allen says:

Hello Duylinh!! This was BY FAR my favorite tutorial coming from a beginner perspective. Are there any other resources online that teach coding by building programs in a clear way like you have outlined here? I'm looking to go from beginner to advanced. I feel that if I was taught like this, everything would make more sense and I would feel like I'm building something practical along the way.

Also, if I wanted to make this program search the web for the current conversion, what types of code would I be getting into? Where would I explore something like that in python?

Thank you again! This video was awesome!

Alexandur Pequeno says:

So I'm trying to add in an 'if' statement for when you're prompted to "input an amount you wish to convert" and you input letters instead of a number. I know I have to state that if userUSD/Euro is not and integer, print "Error: You………" statement then restart the program with "currencyConvert()" but I'm having trouble on the proper structure in which to type it out.. Any help as to how it needs to be written and where?

Great video! It would be great if you could use bigger font, so we would be able to watch this without fullscreen.
