Hi everyone, I'm learning Python 3 and I want to try a learning technique that I saw someone using. This technique will be added.to my study routine, not replace.


I want to print out an existing program and type it back in, that's it, it would just be something extra to do on a Sunday morning, if it makes no difference then no loss. What I do need is existing code. I'm having trouble finding completed code with 500+ lines.


Can anybody direct me to a site where I might find something suitable for this task?

Searching for what you want in a program and putting github in the search as well will provide you with much better results rather than example program. Simple examples of python scripts with a large variety of keywords can easily be found in simple games in my opinion. The link won't have 500 lines in one file however it will have over 500 lines in all of the files, and teach you how programs should be structured (although I haven't necessarily looked at the code to see if it's well written).


I honestly think it's better to be given a task and use example code and modify it to be a better use of time rather than just copying like for like.

KingDavidIII probably has the best idea.


Al Sweigart has written a few book about learning with python. https://inventwithpython.com/ Most are free online. Each book has a theme for certain programs. They won't be 500  lines, but each program has a theme which will help you recognize why parts of the code are there.
