lets say I want to make my name goofy with different variations randomly.
i have the name BoA - i could do something like this right?
import random list1=['B', '13', 'Ã'] list2=['o', 'Ã¸', 'Ã'] list3=['A', 'Ã', 'Ã'] random1=random.randint(0,3) random2=random.randint(0,3) random3=random.randint(0,3) print(list1[random1]+ list2[random2]+ list3[random3]) >> BÃ¸Ã
is there an easier way for me to do this? I just want to know what all my possibilities are. Also, I do get this error. It works fine if its regular characters, so i'm not sure how to fix that.
File "main.py", line 2 SyntaxError: Non-ASCII character '\xc3' in file main.py on line 2, but no encoding declared; see http://python.org/dev/peps/pep-0263/ for details
You could use choice:
# coding=utf-8 import random list1 = ['B', '13', 'ß'] list2 = ['o', 'ø', 'Ö'] list3 = ['A', 'Ä', 'Á'] random1 = random.choice(list1) random2 = random.choice(list2) random3 = random.choice(list3) print(random1 + random2 + random3)
Also as mentioned by the error you need to define the source encoding:
You could use
random.choice, if you want to make longer words this approach won't really be reasonable though (imagine having to create 9 different variables for a word length 9, etc.), so I would use a for loop:
lists = [['B', '13', 'ß'], ['o', 'ø', 'Ö'], ['A', 'Ä', 'Á']] word = '' for lst in lists: word += random.choice(lst) print(word)
