In this Bite we'd like you to loop over the characters in the large block of text (the most important text for any Python programmer: The Zen of Python!)
Within this loop you'll perform the following actions:
- Replace all vowels (aeiou) with stars (*), do this case insensitively.
- Count the number of replacements you do (= vowels in the text).
- Return the new block of text post replacements and the count of vowels you replaced.
Hint: Try converting the block of text to a list first to make working with the characters simpler.
Tip: If you're struggling, work on one step at a time and expand on your code slowly. Don't try and tackle every requirement right away.
Bonus: if you already have some Python under your belt, try to use
reand try to solve it without a for loop :)
