Building a Password Hacking-Tool in Python
JetBrains provides a comprehensive overview of Python language coding best practices in accordance with PEP 8 style guidelines. Since programmers spend a significant amount of time reading code written by other programmers, it becomes extremely important to implement standards that maintain code readability. It is important to be able to collaborate more effectively with others, and also allow others to help you improve your code as well.
When invoking the print() function in Python, you can pass any data structure or variable through the parenthesis, which passes that value as an argument to, in this case the print function. Then function returns a string as output to the terminal. An interesting point to note is that in Python, there exists a built-in feature in print() to optionally pass additional arguments (beyond a single argument) by passing multiple arguments, distinguished by a comma, all contained within the call function (ie. before the final closing parenthesis). The following code illustrates how Python 3.x handles optional arguments that can be passed to the print function.
Of course, this general programming concept of functions that accept “built-in” optional arguments can be extended to almost any example of libraries or modules written by other developers, including those that already exist in the Python documentation. Happy coding!
