# Brandon's Code Project

I want to share my code to everybody.

Create a function that accepts 3 parameters and checks for equality between any two of them.

Your function should return True if 2 or more of the parameters are equal, and false is none of them are equal to any of the others.

Modify your function so that strings can be compared to integers if they are equivalent. For example, if the following values are passed to your function:

6,5,“5”

You should modify it so that it returns true instead of false.

Hint: there’s a built in Python function called “int” that will help you convert strings to Integers.

Homework Assignment #8: Input and Output (I/O)

Details:

Create a note-taking program. When a user starts it up, it should prompt them for a filename.

If they enter a file name that doesn’t exist, it should prompt them to enter the text they want to write to the file.
After they enter the text, it should save the file and exit.

If they enter a file name that already exists, it should ask the user if they want:

B) Delete the file and start over

C) Append the file

If the user wants to read the file it should simply show the contents of the file on the screen.
If the user wants to start over then the file should be deleted and another empty one made in its place.
If a user elects to append the file, then they should be able to enter more text, and that text should be added to the existing text in the file.

Extra Credit:

Allow the user to select a 4th option:

D) Replace a single line

If the user wants to replace a single line in the file, they will then need to be prompted for 2 bits of information:

1. The line number they want to update.

2. The text that should replace that line.

You should format your code as code when posting.

If the filename already exists, it should also give them the option to rename it.

It’s funny how different languages offer advantages in different situations. For example, in MUMPS:

``````Compare(P1,P2,P3)    ;compare 3 values, return true if any two are equal
Q:(P1=P2)!(P1=P3)!(P2=P3) 1
Q 0
; end of function
``````

Because MUMPS automatically does conversion between string and numeric values, it doesn’t care whether you pass it strings, integers, or floating-point values; it will perform the appropriate conversions behind the scenes – the one function will compare any three values, so ‘Compare(“Yes”,1,“Yes”)’ will return true.
