Exercise 11.4 (Sarah)

In [3]:
#The original functions:
def histogram(s):
    d = dict()
    for c in s:
        if c not in d:
            d[c] = 1
            d[c] += 1
    return d

def reverse_lookup(d,v):
    for k in d:
        if d[k] ==v:
            return k
    raise ValueError, 'value does not appear in the dictionary'

h = histogram('easter')
k = reverse_lookup(h,2)  
#this tells you the letters that appear  more twice, but only the first one 
print k


my new updated function:

In [4]:
def reverse_lookup2(d,v):
    reverse = dict()
    for k in d:
        value = d[k]
        if value not in reverse and value == v:
            reverse[value] = [k]
        if value in reverse:
    return reverse

In [5]:
h = histogram('easters')
k = reverse_lookup2(h,2)

{2: ['s', 's', 'e']}

Exercise 11.5 (Sarah)

Original function:

In [6]:
#this is the original function from the text
def invert_dict1(d):
    inverse = dict()
    for key in d:
        val = d[key]
        if val not in inverse:
            inverse[val] = [key]
    return inverse
hist = histogram('parrot')
print hist

{'a': 1, 'p': 1, 'r': 2, 't': 1, 'o': 1}

In [7]:
#and the output of that function
inverse = invert_dict1(hist)
print inverse

{1: ['a', 'p', 't', 'o'], 2: ['r']}

My updated solution:

In [9]:
def invert_dict2(d):
    inverse = dict()
    for key, val in d.iteritems():
    return inverse

In [10]:

{1: ['a', 'p', 't', 'o'], 2: ['r']}
