Use Python Please…

There is one deliverable for this assignment:

hw2.py

It must be in an hw2 directory, which you must create inside a hw directory inside you it117 directory.

Make sure the script obeys all the rules in the Script Requirements page.

To test this script you must copy into your hw2 directory the file red_sox.txt from /home/ghoffman/course_files/it117_files.

Specification

Create the function team_average which has the following header

def team_average(filename):

This function will return the average number of games won by the Red Sox from a text file with entries like this

2011-07-02      Red Sox @  Astros       Win 7-5
2011-07-03      Red Sox @  Astros       Win 2-1
2011-07-04      Red Sox vs Blue Jays    Loss 7-9

This function should create a file object for the file whose name is given by the parameter filename.

If the file cannot be opened, use a try/except statement to print an error message and don’t do any further work on the file.

The function will count the number of lines and the number of games the Red Sox won and use these values to compute the average games won by the team.

This average should be expressed as an integer.

Your hw2.py file must contain the following test code at the bottom of the file

team_average('xxxxxxx')
print(team_average('red_sox.txt'))

Suggestions

Write this program in a step-by-step fashion using the technique of incremental development.

In other words, write a bit of code, test it, make whatever changes you need to get it working, and go on to the next step.

Write the function code to open the file for reading. This code should print an error message and exit the function if the file cannot be opened for reading.

Modify the function so it prints out the lines of the file.

Modify the function to use the split string method to create a list from the from the different fields in a line. Print this list.

For each line get the value of the won/lost field and print it. You will have to use a negative index number to get the value of this field. (Why?)

Count the number of lines in the file and return that number.

Count the number of wins and return that number.

Return the average as an integer percent.

Testing

When you run this script, you should see

Error: Unable to open xxxxxxx
76

Be sure to run this script on the Unix machine so you know it works in the environment in which I will run it when I score your homework.

# Do not copy the below code as there is a problem of indentation with the editor

def team_average(filename):

wins =0 ; # variable to count the wins

try:

with open(filename) as f: # opening the file

content = f.readlines() #reading the lines from file and storing it in list content

for line in content: # reading each line

line_list = line.split() # splitting the line to a list with default delimiter whitespace

if line_list[-2]== ‘Win’: #using negative index since the resukt win/loss is present in 2nd last index of the list

wins = wins + 1

total = len(content) # calculating total games played

percent = (wins*100)/total # calculating percent

return percent

except IOError: # if file doesn’t exist

print “Error : Unable to open “+filename

print(team_average(‘red_sox.txt’)); # testing the code
