Session 4.2

There is a typo in the last example of Session 4.2.  The variable throughout this entire example is called mylist (all lowercase letters).  The last two lines show a variable myList with an uppercase L.  This will be an error in Python since it is case sensitive.  The variable should be named mylist.  This error also occurred in the 1st edition.  Thanks to Phillip and Marisol for catching this one.

Python Programming in Context, 2nd Edition Now Available

Thank you for your interest in our text.  The second edition is now available. Throughout this second edition, we have made a number of small corrections and revisions that aim to provide clearer presentation of the material.  We have updated all references to the cTurtle module to reflect the standard Python 3 turtle module and have also updated all references to the urllib module.
