I’ve noticed this issued spoken about in other topics but was not able to get an answer or perhaps my issue was not discussed.
My issue it I have two Variables:
“Value_Copy” is a copied dictionary of “Master_Dict”. When I update “Value_Copy” it also updates “Master_Dict”.
I assumed this was true when you directly set values from each other and fix the issue when you break them with a “copy dictionary” block. Unfortunately this doesn’t seem to be the case.
What I’m trying to accomplish is embedding keys in my dictionary with additional meta data I don’t want to view. I was deleting these keys from “Value_Copy” before setting them in my list view blocks, maintaining the data integrity in the “Master_Dict”. Unfortunately when I delete them from “Value_Copy” it is also reflected in “Master_Dict”. Is there a known link issue I should be aware of or a common mistake I might be making?
Side note, does anyone have a good reference for naming conventions? As a newbie I’m still trying to sort out the best books and references for this kind of work.
All help is greatly appreciated.
