Okay I’ve found the spelling error in append

Surya N Pasumarthi says:

if we do
players =palyers +[1,2,3,4,5,6]
then the result is same and if we ask to print players then it will print the whole.Whats the use of using append function

Chris Torok says:

Instead of using append(), all I did was redefine players using the concatenation (+ sign) like this: players = players + [1, 4, 18, etc]

BerlingSwe says:

I literally thought about Crosby Malkin and Letang 5 seconds before you said it

musaedy says:

“.append” is for adding one number only. How can I add more than one number to the list?

fawzi nur says:

So, lists are like arrays?

Max Czarnota says:

Wanna ask is the term list in python not an array in other languages? I’m kinda confused since in c# list is something else.

Lalitha Azariah Sphoorthy Nutulapati says:

The visibility of your tutorial would be improved enormously if you could, you know, increase the font size?

Piotr Zaraś says:

Are these lists or arrays? In most programming languages I know (which is not a lot that’s why I’m asking) list has a lot to do with poiters or refereces. Here I cant see that connection but maby there is one that you just didn’t mention.

Caterina Santi says:

Why can’t I use this list also with words ? like
list = [cherry, apple, orange]
list [2] ? 
How can I select a word ?

Ahmed Maldhan Ali says:

>>> players
(1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
>>> players[2]
>>> players[2] = 9
Traceback (most recent call last):
File ““, line 1, in
players[2] = 9
TypeError: ‘tuple’ object does not support item assignment

Why am i getting this error and not to you? lol confused

Abdullah Noman says:

# creating a array using loop
l = [ ]
for index in range(0, 20, 2):
print (l)

In this case it is better to use append() instead +=

Sunil Dangwal says:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File ““, line 1, in
TypeError: ‘builtin_function_or_method’ object is not subscriptable

Surya N Pasumarthi says:

While using append function we can add only 1 entry.But what we should do when we need to add multiple entries..

ayush gupta says:


Gray Hughes says:

YOu can also just do players = [] to clear the list

alone shine says:

I can’t see the words, it’s too small

Sumeet Ramdass says:

Does .append command work in Python 3.6.1. Shell? When I gave command, it gave me the following error –

Traceback (most recent call last):
File ““, line 1, in
TypeError: ‘builtin_function_or_method’ object is not subscriptable

Jithendra I K says:

how to write a list of characters?

Jayesh kumar says:

Hi Bucky, isnt it possible to use an function for appending multiple character, secondly is there any way to append a character in a particular part of the string/list rather than at the last.

Aman Jain says:

Hey some problem here

>>> hello [ 1,2,3,4,5,6,7]
>>> hello[3]
>>> 4
>>> hello[5]
Traceback (most call last):
File ““, line 1, in
hello [4]
IndexError : list index out of range

Help me please!!!

maddcheddah says:

wet it up and throw it in a bag lol

Vitex says:

I’m using Python 2.7 so instead of using + use += (+= means it equals it’s old value + the new value), -= also works

alexedeigba says:

Thanks for the, its been helpful. If i want to update (append) the players list by more than one variable (numbers), how do I go about that (4:12)?
