26: Dictionaries and Modules
In this exercise you're going to explore how the
dict works with modules. You've been using modules any time you use
import to add "features" to your own Python source. You did this the most in Exercise 17, so it might be good to go review that exercise before you begin this one.
Step 1: Review of
The first step is review how
import works and develop that knowledge further. Take some time to enter this code into a Python file named
ex26.py. You can do this in Jupyter by creating a file (left side, blue
[+] button) with that name:
name = "Zed"
height = 74
Once you've created this file you can import it with this:
This will bring the contents of
ex26.py into your Jupyter lab so you can access them like this:
Take some time to play with this as much as possible. Try adding new variables and doing the import again to see how that works.
