Time Limit Exceeded

I created a simple code for practice using tupelos and lists. The code is only 48 lines long but it keeps telling me "time limit exceeded" when I run the code. Occasionally, when I run the code, it provides the output, but only like one out of ten times. What does this mean and how can I fix it?

It will go away for sure! It is a sololearn/internet thing as the code is run on the server not your phone. code on your pc in an ide and you can run all the [email protected]

@Alyssa Menard well Sololearn won't allow endless, that's why it has the time limit. they want to minimize resources wasted so others can use code playground too.

It makes me wonder what will happen if I actually get as far as creating something that is several hundred lines! Do you know if this occurs just in sololearn or if I download Python on my computer would this problem go away?

Server codes have to finish in < ~5 seconds. Web codes are exempt, as is the output from PHP (as long as PHP delivers output in time).

the code had an endless loop at the end. When you insert a break command or define the endless loop, it works all the time. 😊

@peter it was supposed to be endless, that was intentional ;p

It depends on what you are trying to make. The server that your code is executed on may not have the libraries or dependencies needed to execute your code.
