Python 3 - pass Statement


Advertisements

It 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.

Syntax

pass

Example

#!/usr/bin/python3

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

print ("Good bye!")

Output

When the above code is executed, it produces the following result −

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