Check Yourself!

Next we need to ensure that the user actually typed something.

empty_string = "" if len(empty_string) > 0: # Run this block. # Maybe print something? else: # That string must have been empty.

We can check that the user’s string actually has characters!



Write an if statement that verifies that the string has characters.

  • Add an if statement that checks that len(original) is greater than zero. Don’t forget the : at the end of the if statement!
  • If the string actually has some characters in it, print the user’s word.
  • Otherwise (i.e. an else: statement), please print "empty".

You’ll want to run your code multiple times, testing an empty string and a string with characters. When you’re confident your code works, continue to the next exercise.
