Python: Generate a random integer and date
Python module: Exercise-5 with Solution
Write a Python program to generate a random integer between 0 and 6 - excluding 6, random integer between 5 and 10 - excluding 10, random integer between 0 and 10, with a step of 3 and random date between two dates.
import random import datetime print("Generate a random integer between 0 and 6:") print(random.randrange(5)) print("Generate random integer between 5 and 10, excluding 10:") print(random.randrange(start=5, stop=10)) print("Generate random integer between 0 and 10, with a step of 3:") print(random.randrange(start=0, stop=10, step=3)) print("\nRandom date between two dates:") start_dt = datetime.date(2019, 2, 1) end_dt = datetime.date(2019, 3, 1) time_between_dates = end_dt - start_dt days_between_dates = time_between_dates.days random_number_of_days = random.randrange(days_between_dates) random_date = start_dt + datetime.timedelta(days=random_number_of_days) print(random_date)
Generate a random integer between 0 and 6: 0 Generate random integer between 5 and 10, excluding 10: 5 Generate random integer between 0 and 10, with a step of 3: 3 Random date between two dates: 2019-02-17

Python: Tips of the Day
For-else construct useful when searched for something and find it:
# For example assume that I need to search through a list and process each item until a flag item is found and # then stop processing. If the flag item is missing then an exception needs to be raised. for i in mylist: if i == theflag: break process(i) else: raise ValueError("List argument missing terminal flag.")
