SyntaxError: unexpected EOF while parsing

Today In this article we will Explain Syntaxerror unexpected EOF while parsing In Python.

Without wasting your time, Let’s start This Article to Solve This Error.

What does unexpected EOF while parsing mean in Python?

The SyntaxError: unexpected EOF while parsing error occurs where the control in the code reaches the end before all the code is executed. 

How do I get rid of EOF error?

The best practice to avoid EOF in python while coding on any platform is to catch the exception, and we don’t need to perform any action so, we just pass the exception using the keyword “pass” in the “except” block.

Generally, if you forget to complete a code block in python code, you will get an error “SyntaxError: unexpected EOF while parsing.” There are multiple reasons behind why this error is raised. Let us look into a few examples.

Scenario 1 – Incomplete parameters may cause this kind of errors.

dictionary={ 'FirstName':'Jhon', print(dictionary['FirstName'].upper()
SyntaxError: unexpected EOF while parsing

If you look at the above code, we have created a dictionary, and the curly braces are not closed. The Python compiler will throw an unexpected eof while parsing error during compilation.

Solution :

dictionary={ 'FirstName':'Jhon',}

Scenario 2: Incomplete functions along with statements, loops, try and except 

In case of for loop, while loop, if statement, for statement and function make sure that atleast one line of code is present in the statement. If not, you can expect unexpected eof while parsing.

fruits = ["mango","grapes","banana","apple"]
for i in fruits :

If you look at the above example, we have not added any code inside the for statement. This raises an error, and the same will happen even in the case of the while loop and if statement.

Solution :

fruits = ["mango","grapes","banana","apple"]
for i in fruits :

Now, I hope your error will be solved.
