Here’s a great article from The Crazy Programmer
How many of us are Python Programmers here? I hope many of us and I hope almost all of us might have come across
SyntaxError: unexpected EOF while parsing and we might have tried to look for it somewhere online.
But do you exactly know what is this error all about and how we can remove it from our python code?
So, what exactly an EOF is?
EOF stands for End Of File. This means we have now come to the end of our file and the error related to this is shown below with example code.
Suppose I was writing a program in python and I forget to write it in proper syntax. For example:
num = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] # here in for loop, I tried to end the print function in a wrong way for i in num: print(i
Now the above code contains one error and the error is that the print function in the above code is not closed properly. We can see that it doesn’t have the closing parenthesis
Now, when we tried to run this code, it showed us
SyntaxError: unexpected EOF while parsing
Now the problem is before our print function ends, our file ended. This lead to the SyntaxError: unexpected EOF while parsing. To overcome this type of error in our python file, we need to ensure that we have not left any part of our code unclosed or not in proper syntax. I hope this is clear to you.
Well, this was all about the
EOF and the error related to it. If you stuck into any kind of error, don’t forget to google it and try to debug it on your own. This will teach you how to debug on your own as someone might have faced a similar problem earlier.
If you still don’t find any solution for your problem, you can ask your doubt in the comment’s section below and we’ll get back to you.
