This is my problem. I hope this doesn't get deleted.

I've been trying to run some codes using while loop on python. At the end of every false trying to make it true, it keeps running the false even after I might given the command when it's true.

Below is a screenshot
sory to ask, what IDE IS THIS?

Are you attending classes or video tutorials?
No classes.
I'm learning it on my own but with the help of video tutorials, pdfs, and of course here on Nairaland.

Q. Write a program that asks the user to enter a password. If the user enters the right password,
the program should tell them they are logged in to the system. Otherwise, the program
should ask them to reenter the password. The user should only get five tries to enter the
password, after which point the program should tell them that they are kicked off of the
system.

I used both loops, for and while loop
See below
This is my solution..but how can we make a program in the sense that after the user enters the incorrect password 5 times,it will print a new statement (not the else statement output)..
hope you understand?

Okay I've tried running this code to my best of understanding. But I'm not getting what I need in the question.
I've successfully been able to code the question 1, going to question 2, it's just giving me an empty list.

Yes, while loops are not as straightforward as for loops; but there are many instances where you have no choice but to use a while loop.
The main thing to remember about while loops is that you have a condition that must be monitored, and the condition must be evaluated at the end of each iteration through the loop in other to prevent an infinite loop.

while <condition>:
<statements>
<update condition>

Bro can u please in brief explain what' "Text file" in python is all about. I'm lost in that topic

Text files are simple files which lack the special formatting available in files produced by word processing software. As text files are popular and ubiquitous, it is only natural that every programming language has a way to access and modify text files. Other popular (universal) formats you should be interested in are JSON, XML, and CSV.
In python when you open a file, you create a resource object (which points to the file), with that resource you can now decide on the mode you want to open the file in (read only, write only, append, read/write, etc). From here you can then get the contents of the file, or even insert content into the file.
It is a broad topic, so I can't cover everything here.

Please can you explain more about this below... If possible, you can code it for better understanding

To my own beginner understanding, after defining the function,the function takes/accept input known as parameters..Text is the only arbitrary parameters in the function,others are optional parameters which also indicates that the function can have default argument apart from "text"(which the user have to always enter)..others will be printed at default because they are optional parameters...if you return and print,you have to enter at least an argument for "text" parameter because it is not fixed to any value..other parameters can get values from users too but it is not compulsory for the user to enter a value because it is fixed..
the most important thing you should know is that OPTIONAL PARAMETERS COMES AFTER REQUIRED PARAMETERS.."TEXT" IS A REQUIRED PARAMETER HERE ..
I hope you understand...
This program will definitely return a dictionary if you print it .

Excellent explanation. cool

@syluck, I hope you have read this. The screenshot you posted is simply referring to optional parameters (which always have a default value, and can be omitted), and compulsory parameters - which must always be provided. In the screenshot, the 'text' parameter is the only compulsory parameter, while the others are optional.

P.S. What's with returning a dictionary though? I suspect you are probably mixing somethings up.
