Not sure what's wrong with this code...

Postby KoreanCookie » Mon Apr 21, 2014 5:08 pm

I made a short program that is supposed to print the characters in a string one by one with some delay between each character. So I ended up with this, but when I run this program, I get no result. Nothing is printed on the screen and the program doesn't even end. I would like someone to help with with what I am doing wrong. (Python 3.4)

[EDIT] Okay, I'm still not sure what the problem is, but when I tried it with IDLE it worked for some reason. I think it was there was a bug in the IDE I was using (PyCharm). I guess I'll just use IDLE for now until I know what the problem is.

Code: Select all
import time

def print_pause(text, pause):
    i = 0
    while i < len(text):
        print(text[i], end="")
        i += 1

print_pause("What is going on, I don't even... ", 1)
print_pause("Tell me please...", 1)

Works fine for me, although it doesn't print characters immediately, which is probably what you wanted.
For that, you'll have to use sys.stdout.flush() after your prints.
