pass - A null statement, a statement that will do nothing
A code block, such as a for loop, while loop, or function, cannot be empty. The pass keyword gives you something to put in a block that is a placeholder for later coding so that it "passes" syntax checking.
for x in range(1, 3): pass x = 0 while x != 0: pass def todo(): pass class implementMe: pass
Notes: Be careful - the function will still run the code, it simply ignores the pass statements:
def todo(): a = 5 pass print(a) todo()
