Each Answer to this Q is separated by one/two green lines.
I am writing a simple sort program in python and encounter this error. I want to swap list elements but it returns an error. I am attaching the error and program in question below.
list[i+1] = list[i] TypeError: 'tuple' object does not support item assignment
def my_sort(list): for index in range(1,len(list)): value=list[index] i=index-1 while i>=0: if value<list[i]: list[i+1] = list[i] list[i]=value i=i-1 else: break return input_list=eval(input("Enter list items")) my_sort(input_list) print(input_list)
Evaluating “1,2,3” results in
(1, 2, 3), a
tuple. As you’ve discovered, tuples are immutable. Convert to a list before processing.
or simply assign the whole tuple itself, instead of changing elements inside tuple.
example: want to add ‘count’ to 1st element of the ‘i-th’ tuple :
tup[i] = (tup[i] + count, tup[i])
To anyone googling this error: check for unwanted commas in your code.
arr = np.zeros(n), arr[i] = something
will throw this error.
