http://www.daniweb.com – Hi all, I am reading through the Non-Programmer's Tutorial and I would like to make a program with Python in which is similar to the one in the example. The difference with the program in this example is that you can only assign a number to a name, whereas in my program I would like to assign several variables to a number; for example I want the user to add events in, and give information like date, time, location and description. def print_menu():     print '1. Print Phone Numbers'     print '2. Add a Phone Number'     print '3. Remove a Phone Number'     print '4. Lookup a Phone Number'     print '5. Quit'     print   numbers = {} menu_choice = 0 print_menu() while menu_choice != 5:     menu_choice = input("Type in a number (1-5): ")     if menu_choice == 1:         print "Telephone Numbers:"         for x in numbers.keys():             print "Name: ", x, "\tNumber:", numbers[x]         print     elif menu_choice == 2:         print "Add Name and Number"         name = raw_input("Name: ")         phone = raw_input("Number: ")         numbers[name] = phone     elif menu_choice == 3:         print "Remove Name and Number"         name = raw_input("Name: ")         if name in numbers:             del numbers[name]         else:             print name, "was not found"     elif menu_choice == 4:         print "Lookup Number"         name = raw_input("Name: ")         if name in numbers:             print "The number is", numbers[name]         else:             print name, "was not found"     elif menu_choice != 5:         print_menu() So for example I don't know if the numbers dictionary will work here?
