I'm writing a script in Python and keep running into an error that says:"TypeError: 'str' object does not support item assignment?" I thought I was just copying one string to another, so I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I guess I need more information on item assignments.
This is a debug account.
Just as the error message says, you can't modify a string.
One approach, which will let you keep most of the code you've written, is to convert your string to a list of characters:
str = list(str)
Then join it back into a sting when you're done:
str = "".join(str)
