Crafting a Classic Hangman Game

Hints 1/2Hints 1/2

Guessing the word from a large file can be challenging, so we provide users with the option to use a hint.

Adding Hint Functionality

To integrate hint functionality into our program, we'll proceed in two phases. The hints_match function determines whether the current state of the gameword—which includes correctly guessed letters and placeholders—corresponds exactly to any word in the file. The function will return True if there's a match and False otherwise.

Task

  1. Define the hints_match function with word_to_match and word_from_list as parameters.
  2. Remove spaces from word_to_match.
  3. Compare the lengths of test_list and other_list.
  4. Return False if the lengths differ.
  5. Initialize a for loop to iterate through test_list.
  6. Increment the counter.
