Reading a post from a Planet PythonBrasil blog today, our friend Rodrigo Cacilhas has proposed some approaches on the Oddwords puzzle where the objective is to invert the odd words in a phrase.

The post can be seen here:

I created a small solution based on list comprehension and the and-or trick. It´s like this:

text= "abc def ghi"

print " ".join([(x%2 == 0 and y or y[::-1]) for x,y in enumerate(text.split())])

It shows how powerful list comprehensions can be.
