hey everyone !
So I'm currently testing yield function
```#contient des exemples d'utilisation de la fonction Yield

#exp 1
def exYield1() :
"""test de yield"""
yield 1
yield 2
yield 3

print("Exemple 1 : ")
for i in exYield1() :
print(i)
print("")

#exp 2
def exYield2(bord_inf,bord_sup) :
"""Cette fonction avance de 2 en 2 entre des bords délimités"""
while bord_inf < bord_sup :
valeurRecu = (yield bord_inf)
if valeurRecu is not None :
bord_inf = valeurRecu
bord_inf += 2

print("Exemple 2 : ")
#compte de 2 en 2 de 10 à 20
for i in exYield2(10,20) :
print(i)
print("")

print("Exemple 3 : ")
#compte de 2 en 2 de 10 à 50
gen1 = exYield2(10,100)
for i in gen1 :
print(i)
if i == 50 :
gen1.close()
print("")

print("Exemple 4 : ")
#compte de 2 en 2 de 10 à 100 mais saute les nombres de 20 à 59
gen2 = exYield2(10,100)
for i in gen2 :
print(i)
if i == 18 :
gen2.send(58)
```
and when i get to the 4th exemple the loop does not display the number 60
``````Output:
Exemple 4 :
10
12
14
16
18
62
64
66
68
70
72
74
76
78
80
82
84
86
88
90
92
94
96
98
``````
it only append when i launch the script, if i rewrite the code in the console(exyield2 and the 4th exemple)60 is display.
``````Output:
10
12
14
16
18
60
62
64

68
70

I observe that if 56 is sent instead of 58 one will get 60 too. You should look into definition of you function to find out why this behaviour happens.

Python documentation about yield and yield expression
It is because `send()` runs the generator to the next yield statement, just like `next()`. You can get the correct result with this code
```def exYield2(bord_inf,bord_sup) :
"""Cette fonction avance de 2 en 2 entre des bords délimités"""
valeurRecu = None
while bord_inf < bord_sup :
if valeurRecu is not None :
bord_inf = valeurRecu
valeurRecu = (yield bord_inf)
bord_inf += 2
```
Thanks it work but i don't understand why the other method work only in the interpreter.

When you run code in the interactive interpreter, it prints the result of every statement (if not None). In this case, it prints the result of `gen2.send(58)`, which is the next value produced by yield. In a file you don't see the result because there is no call to print(). Consider this
```>>> x = y = 1
>>> x + y
2
```
The same code in a file doesn't display the 2.
Ok it's what that, thanks.
