Global and Local Variables in Python
In this post, you will learn how to work with global and local variables so that you can use that same knowledge and thus evolve.
- global variables are all those that are defined outside a function (in the “root” of our code) and have a global scope;
- local variables are all those that are defined inside a function;
- in short, not all variables are accessible from all places in our code.
access = 'Global' def updateAccess(): access = 'Local' print('Access inside the function:', access) updateAccess() print('Access outside the function:', access) ''' Access inside the function: Local Access outside the function: Global '''
