Setting a Local Python Variable to be Global

Python - General Python

variables

We can set a local variable (i.e. one in a function) to be global by using the global keyword. This allows a global variable to be modified from within a non-global space or a local variable to be accessible outside the scope of the local space it's declared within.
def some_function()
    global variable_name
    variable_name = 'New Value'

#Example:
    
number = 42
def new_number():
    global number 
    number = 43
new_number()
