Each Answer to this Q is separated by one/two green lines.
I need to
be able to assign a UUID to a user and document this in a .txt file. This is all I have:
import uuid a = input("What's your name?") print(uuid.uuid1()) f.open(#file.txt)
but nothing comes up, may be a logical error but I don’t know.
you can try this !
a = uuid.uuid1() str(a) --> '448096f0-12b4-11e6-88f1-180373e5e84a'
You can also do this. Removes the dashes as a bonus. link to docs.
import uuid my_id = uuid.uuid4().hex
It’s probably because you’re not actually closing your file. This can cause problems. You want to use the context manager/
with block when dealing with files, unless you really have a reason not to.
with open('file.txt', 'w') as f: # Do either this f.write(str(uuid.uuid1())) # **OR** this. # You can leave out the `end=''` if you want. # That was just included so that the two of these # commands do the same thing. print(uuid.uuid1(), end='', file=f)
This will automatically close your file when you’re done, which will ensure that it’s written to disk.
[update] i added str function to write it as string and close the file to make sure it does it immediately,before i had to terminate the program so the content would be write
import uuid def main(): a=input("What's your name?") print(uuid.uuid1()) main() f=open("file.txt","w") f.write(str(uuid.uuid1())) f.close()
I guess this works for me
