btw, to answer your python question, I googled and basically found that:

import re



p = re.compile('Hello')

p.sub('Good Bye', 'Hello, World!')

// produces: Good Bye, World!

I hope I could help you.

my code thus far.

from Tkinter import *

# from re import *        ?

# from string import *    ?



def insert():

    name = ent.get()                   #i know that somewhere you can 

    print name                         # replace the entered text 'ent'

    listbox.insert(END,name)           # but am having an impossible time

    ent.delete(0,END)                  # trying to get this done!

    

root = Tk()

root.geometry('200x210+350+70')



ent = Entry(root)

button = Button(root, text = 'Leet Me Up!', command = insert)

listbox = Listbox(root)



ent.pack()

button.pack()

listbox.pack()



root.mainloop()

http://docs.python.org/lib/string-methods.html

take a look at the documentation for replace.

it takes two parameters anda third optional parameter.

The first parameter is the string you want replaced. the second is the string to replace it with, and the optional is the number of times to do it

so say you want to replace e with 3. you would do

name = ent.get()

name = name.replace("e", "3")

that will replace all occurences of "e" in name with "3"

THANKX!!! Arrrrrg! coding sux for me because i do dumb things like this and never see it! i had it correct probably 5 times EXCEPT i was putting

ent.replace

insted of name.replace.

Thankx sharpen!

ok last thing... mml, im likeing l33t sp34ker.

i was thinking... and it would be kinda lame if everything was the same replacement... like above when i wrote sp34er.. that is much better than sp34k3r, i think. Or what if i wanted to replace some of the E's with 3 and some with < or something else.

the question is, does anyone know how i could get the program to replace some instances of 'o' with 0 and some with '()'. I think that the best way would be to use the random module, and make variables for each letter that could have more than one output in leet. then have it replace like sharpen pointed out.

the problem with that is it returns the same random out put for every instance. the o's are always (n)0000000000000000000(b) insted of

0()()00()0()

im stumped.

Be sure when you are randomly replacing things that you set the number of occurences to replace as 1 or whatever. You may want to iterate through the string (I don't program in python so I don't know how easy it is) and copy each character into a temp string. Randomly l33t it, then append it to an output string. Also be sure to set the random number generator's seed to the clock (if that is necessary in python).

If you make a leet speak maker, I'll personally fly over to America and kick your ass.

mml! (makes me laugh)

first of all, Leet Speaker is an example as to not give away something. BUT: seeing as how you are so intrested in it, i will be releasing it in the coding section very soon, per your request.
