Python - The pass Statement

The pass statement is used when a statement is required syntactically but you do not want any command or code to execute.

The pass statement is a null operation; nothing happens when it executes. The pass statement is also useful in places where your code will eventually go, but has not been written yet, i.e., in stubs).




The following code shows how you can use the pass statement in Python −

for letter in 'Python':
   if letter == 'h':
      print ('This is pass block')
   print ('Current Letter :', letter)
print ("Good bye!")

When the above code is executed, it produces the following output

Current Letter : P
Current Letter : y
Current Letter : t
This is pass block
Current Letter : h
Current Letter : o
Current Letter : n
Good bye!
