Hello there,
I am attending the lectures, and written the codes according to lectures.. Professor's codes are working fine, but my one gives an error. I am new to python. Please it's a humble request, just be easy on me while making me understand about the code. It will be much appreciated.

import math
##points as lists
r = []
r.append(p1+p2)
r.append(p1+p2)
return r

p = [1,2]
q = [3,1]
print r

##points as classes

class cartesianPoint():
pass

cp1 = cartesianPoint()
cp2 = cartesianPoint()
cp1.x = 1.0
cp1.y = 2.0
cp2.x = 3.0
cp2.y = 1.0

def samePoint(p1,p2):
return (p1.x == p2.x) and (p1.y == p2.y)

def printPoint(p):
print '(' + str(p.x) + ', ' +str(p.y) + ')'

class polarPoint:
pass
pp1 = polarPoint()
pp2 = polarPoint()
pp1.angle = 0
pp2.angle = math.pi / 4.0

class cPoint():
def __init__(self,x,y):
self.x = x
self.y = y
self.angle = math.atan2(self.y, self.x)
def cartesian(self):
return (self.x, self.y)
def polar(self):
def __str__(self):
return '(' + str(self.x) + ', ' + str(self.y) + ')'
def __cmp__(self,other):
return (self.x == other.x) and (self.y == other.y)

And below is the error. Evrything works fine untill class polar point, but when I try to pick point (instance) p in the list i.e x,y (1,2,3,1). It does not work. I mean p.x gets the error where it should give me the value of x. And i know this error will go all the way down to def__cmp if i dont ficit from top.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<pyshell#46>", line 1, in <module>
p.x
AttributeError: 'list' object has no attribute 'x'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<pyshell#47>", line 1, in <module>
p.y
AttributeError: 'list' object has no attribute 'y'

Help will be much appreciated, thanks in advance.

Well, right at the top of your code you set "P" to be a list:
p = [1,2]

Are you sure you don't want to print pp1.x or pp2.x or cp1.x or cp2.x?

Cheers,

p.x

You have 4 different implementations, but you're mixing the first
with the others. Since p is a list, you need to use list semantics,
p  and p . The .x attribute is not defined on a list.
