Python 2.7.5 Variable Name Syntax Error

advertisements

My code was working just fine earlier today until I changed around a few libraries that I was using. Now, I'm getting this error when I try to run the code:

File "wimmer.py", line 29
category = raw_input('Give me a category: ')
       ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I'm not quite sure what's wrong. Any suggestions?

Code: (the indentation is slightly off)

browser = Browser()

book = open_workbook(join('googleurls.xls'), formatting_info=True, on_demand=True)
testcell = book.sheet_by_index(0).cell(0,15).value
print ('The test link is: %s' % (testcell))
raw_input("Press ENTER to continue")

with book as myfile:

for i in range(0, 9):
    line = book.sheet_by_index(0).cell(i,15).value
    #for line in myfile:

    browser.visit(line)
    print ('The link is: %s' % (line))
    print ('The search term is: %s' % (myfile.cell(i, 0))
    #enter terminal prompts

    category = raw_input('Give me a category: ')
    print ('Your category was %s' % (category))
    #put this in the excel sheet in the right column

    fusion = raw_input('Fuse with another? ')
    print('Term was fused with %s' % (fusion))
    #put this in the excel sheet in the right column

    translate = raw_input('Change translation to -? ')
    print('Term was translated to %s' % (translate))
    #put this in the excel sheet in the right column

    raw_input("Press ENTER to continue") #moves onto next link


Often, when python (or another language) parses a file, and there is an error in the file, it will think the problem is on the line after - this is because it interprates the line with the error as the first part of the instruction, and the following line as the second part. The first part is ok (apart from being incomplete), but when it tries to read the next bit, it doesn't make sense (because it's supposed to be a separate instruction).

Check out the line(s) before, make sure all your brackets & braces line up.
