this is a small update to the test string type function. which would propagate to the jc_makeDefWin(), in the same post.
i realised whilst running a few functions, that i had no case for boolean arguments. the reason for this was the possibility of using 1 and 0 as boolean arguments. but just to make things neater, here is a the same small function with boolean case:
def testStringType(string): def testType(var): def numTest(n): try: return float(n) except: return str(n) if var.isdigit(): return int(var) elif entry == 'True': return True elif entry == 'False': return False elif var.isalpha(): return str(var) else: return numTest(var) cleanList= if ',' in var: clean = var.replace(' ', '') cleanList = clean.split(',') return cleanList else: single = testType(var) return single
simply reading if the string is either 'True' or 'False', before checking .isalpha().
you can fin the fully documented (and silly verbose) functions in the previous post.
