My code is
r = MaR.rRLFastIn
print (f)
f = FacingL()
print (f)

the output is


FacingL() is
func FacingL():
if (Facing == Enums.RobotFacing.NORTH):
Facing = Enums.RobotFacing.WEST
elif (Facing == Enums.RobotFacing.WEST):
Facing = Enums.RobotFacing.SOUTH
elif (Facing == Enums.RobotFacing.SOUTH):
Facing = Enums.RobotFacing.EAST
elif (Facing == Enums.RobotFacing.EAST):
Facing = Enums.RobotFacing.NORTH
LogE (“Robot.FacingL: Facing is messed up”)

How does my variable become NULL?

f is being assigned to the return value of FacingL(), but the function doesn’t have a return value, so null is assigned to f.

OMG! such a simple mistake to make! Makes me wonder why it was working in most places but stopped there! Thank you!
