Python NameError

NameError is a common error in Python that occurs when a variable or function name is not defined in the current scope. Some common reasons why this error might occur include:

  • Misspelling the variable or function name
  • Forgetting to define the variable or function before using it
  • Using a variable or function outside of its scope
  • Not importing the right module that contains the variable or function

It’s important to carefully check your code for any typos or missing definitions when encountering a NameError.
