## Rolling dice with Python / Würfeln mit Python II

Based on http://uweziegenhagen.de/?p=2741 I created another example, this time the algorithm returns a list of the rolled values.

```# for the random selection from random import choice # to create the sorted dictionary import collections   def throwDiceList(*args): if not args: L = [] else: L = args[0] x = choice(range(1,7)) L.append(x) if x == 6: return throwDiceList(L) else: return L   # little test function def TestDiceList(n): # create a dictionary d = {} for x in range(0, n): wurf = sum(throwDiceList()) # if key is found, just increase its frequency by 1 if wurf in d: d.update({wurf:d[wurf]+1}) else: # else create new key with initiL frequency 1 d.update({wurf:1}) od = collections.OrderedDict(sorted(d.items())) for k, v in od.iteritems(): print k, v   TestDiceList(60000)```
