How to Tell which Printing You Have

On the copyright page (facing the first page of the Preface), there is a printing history of the book. The printing history is a row of numbers that—at the 1st printing—looks like this:

10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

At each subsequent printing, one number is removed from the end of this row of numbers to indicate which printing of the book you have. For example, the last number in the row of numbers in the 2nd printing is 2, and so on. In the list below, [n] means that an error is fixed in the nth printing.

Chapter 4 Table 1
In the second example, change
total = total - 1
to
total = total - i
Chapter 5 Exercise R5.9
Add this line to the end of the g function below line 21:
   return b
The entire program should read:
a = 0
b = 5
  
def main() :
   global a
   global b
   i = 10
   b = g(i)
   print(a + b + i)
  
def f(i) :
   n = 0
   while n * n <= i :
      n = n + 1
   return n - 1
	
def g(a) :
   b = 0
   for n in range(a) :
      i = f(n)
      b = b + i 
   return b

main()
Chapter 5 Exercise P5.43
Replace “Supply a button that, when clicked, produces the next iteration.” with “Write a turtle graphics program that draws the iterations of the snowflake shape.”
Chapter 6 Section 6.7.1
Add a comma behind the second-to-last row of the counts table:
counts = [
      [ 0, 3, 0 ],
      [ 0, 0, 1 ],
      [ 0, 0, 1 ],
      [ 1, 0, 0 ],
      [ 0, 0, 1 ],
      [ 3, 1, 1 ],
      [ 0, 1, 0 ],
      [ 1, 0, 1 ]
   ]
Chapter 7 Section 7.3 cipher.py
Change
if offset > LETTERS :
to
if offset >= LETTERS :
Chapter 7 Toolbox 7.3
Change
"http://horstmann.com/index.html"            
to
"http://horstmann.com/python4everyone/sample.html"
(Why the change? As it happens, page at the former URL uses single quotes for images—see Exercise P7.49.)
