RGB=lambda red, green, blue: (((red*256)+green)*256)+blue

gets you a grey triangle


I'm a Python beginner. Can you tell me why use lambda over the following? What's the advantage?

def RGB(red,green,blue):
  return (((red*256)+green)*256)+blue

I'm a Python beginner too Smile

Both are equivalent. Once something can be done in a one liner I'm tempted to do this.
In principle, as a beginner, I try to use some language specifics where I see them fit.
Here is some discussion on this subject. In short: you don't need it, but it may serve you well once you're accustomed to it.

Usually you would use <lambda> as an anonymous function directly:
draw_filled_polygon([(0,0),(160,120),(0,240)],(lambda red, green, blue: (((red*256) +green) *256) +blue)(120,120,100))
the arguments of the lambda function can of course be variables
