The frequency of each vowel is calculated and the frequency of all the consonants in total is calculated. The program logic is fairly simple, and uses a dictionary comprehension and a dict; the more interesting thing about it, is that it illustrates 8 Python language features in under 35 lines of code.</p> <p>More details and sample output here:</p> <p><a href="https://jugad2.blogspot.in/2017/01/classifying-letters-and-counting-their.html" rel="nofollow">https://jugad2.blogspot.in/2017/01/classifying-letters-and-counting-their.html</a></p> Dot-style nested lookups over dictionary based data structures (Python) 2008-12-14T14:32:59-08:00David Mosshttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/4124829/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/576586-dot-style-nested-lookups-over-dictionary-based-dat/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 576586 by <a href="/recipes/users/4124829/">David Moss</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/access/">access</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/attribute/">attribute</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/dictionaries/">dictionaries</a>). Revision 2. </p> <p>This recipe allows you to present dictionary based nested data stuctures in your Python code as objects with nested attributes.</p> <p>It provides dot ('.') based attribute lookups, like this :-</p> <pre class="prettyprint"><code>&gt;&gt;&gt; x = d.foo.bar.baz </code></pre> <p>instead of the usual (and longer) Python dictionary syntax lookups :-</p> <pre class="prettyprint"><code>&gt;&gt;&gt; x = d['foo']['bar']['baz'] </code></pre> <p>This recipe saves you <em>lot</em> of typing!</p> <p>For simplicity and readability this particular version show a read only lookup class.</p> Fallout 3 "terminal hacking" minigame cracker (Python) 2008-12-20T11:18:35-08:00Bill Sharerhttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/4168512/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/576590-fallout-3-terminal-hacking-minigame-cracker/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 576590 by <a href="/recipes/users/4168512/">Bill Sharer</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/dictionaries/">dictionaries</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/fallout_3_minigame/">fallout_3_minigame</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/lists/">lists</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/sets/">sets</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/text/">text</a>). </p> <p>crackerhacker.py is a script I wrote as a Python learning exercise to help solve Fallout 3's "terminal hacking" minigame.
