Join Barron Stone for an in-depth discussion in this video Add new input parameters, part of Programming Foundations: Real-World Examples.
- The function I use for making an omelette…is very convenient,…but it's also very boring.…Every time I perform that function…I produce the exact same generic omelette.…It's tasty, but I like variety.…So rather than making the same generic omelette every time…I'll modify my function…so I can add a special ingredient to it.…Now, when I decide to make an omelette,…I'll choose an ingredient,…like maybe this plate of bacon,…and I'll use that ingredient as the input…to my omelette-making function.…Let's take a quick look at how we can pass…input ingredients to the make_omelette function in Python.…
I have the start_01_03_breakfast_functions script…open in Idle, which has the mix_and_cook, make_omelette…and make_pancake functions that I've already created.…I'll modify the make_omelette function now…so we can pass input objects directly to it…by adding an input parameter inside of the parenthesis…called ingredients.…This parameter is a variable name that I can use…inside of the make_omelette function…to access the input value being provided by the user.…
