I was discovering String in python. Suddenly I stuck here by getting “indexerror: string index out of range” this error message.

def print_letters(string):
  count = 0
  newstring = []
  while count <= len(string):
    m = string[count]
    count +=1
    print m

Do you have any idea? I’d appreciate it if you figure the error in my program.

Hello Gavin,

According to your program, you wrote wrong here:

while count <= len(string)

Imagine you have a String length of 7 and its index is 6. So you can’t write the value equal to the String length because Strings are zero-indexed based.

Please change the condition. The program should run with no error .

Problem: Please consider the following code: i = [1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13] j = [] k = 0 for l in i: j[k] = l k += 1 print j The output (Python 2.6.6 on Win 7 32-bit) is: > Traceback (most recent call last): > j[k] = l IndexError: list assignment index out of range I guess it's something simple I don't understand. Can someone clear it up?
