I have a loop starting with
for i in range(0, 100). Normally it runs correctly, but sometimes it fails due to network conditions. Currently I have it set so that on failure, it will
continue in the except clause (continue on to the next number for
Is it possible for me to reassign the same number to
i and run through the failed iteration of the loop again?
while True inside your for loop, put your
try code inside, and break from that
while loop only when your code succeeds.
for i in range(0,100): while True: try: # do stuff except SomeSpecificException: continue break
I prefer to limit the number of retries, so that if there's a problem with that specific item you will eventually continue onto the next one, thus:
for i in range(100): for attempt in range(10): try: # do thing except: # perhaps reconnect, etc. else: break else: # we failed all the attempts - deal with the consequences.
