It's often nice to print titles out with underlining - like this, in fact:

Printing titles

The underlining for each title is the same width as its text.


Here's some code to produce the output shown above:

Print code

This code assumes the print_title function exists - read on!

Write the required print_title function to make your code  work.  As a reminder, here's the syntax of a function:

def function_name(argument_1: data_type, ..., argument_n: data_type) -> return_type:

# do things, but remember to ...

return return_value

You can use the len function to count the number of characters in each title (call this N), and then print out "-" * N to print the space character N times.

Test that your program works by printing a few things (with titles, of course), then close it down.
