Python tutorial 13–Strings

Common methods :

#string.upper() – This will change everything to upper case
#’This is a string {}’.format(42) –  will publish This is a string 42
# s.capitalize()- Publish in sentence case
#s.swapcase() -opposite case
# s.find(‘is’) – returns the postion
#s.replace(‘This’,’That’) – This is entirely dirreferen objetc that returns
#s.strip()- this removes white space from beginning and end
#s.rstrip() – removes white space from end of string
#s1.rstri(‘n’)- takes out only new line
#s.isalnum()-if checks it has only alphanumeric charactures
#s.isalpha()-checks only for alpha charcters, like a to z onle
#s.isdigit()- checks if only digit
#s.isprintable()- checks if all characters are printable


Format method

#s=”this is {},that is {}”.format(a,b)
#now you can do s.format(d,e) and this geenrates a new objetc which youc an save in a different vairable

# You can also specify as ‘this is {1} and that is {0}’.format(a,b))
# this will print this is b and that is a
# you can also use dictionary to rpint than postion like ‘this is {bob} and that is {fred}’.format(bob=a,fred=b)
# another way is to define dictionaly first d=dict(bob=a, fred=b) and then use ‘this is {bob} and that is {fred}’.format(**d)

# Splitting and joining stings
s= ‘This is string a strng of words’
#s.split() splits depending on white space i.e. [“This”,’is’,’string’,’of’,’words’
# to specify argument to splits
#words=split(‘i’)  # this gives strings with all i removed and words splitter on i character
#    joining   
# ‘,’join(words) # This will join back all the words

    Thanks for your post. What I want to comment on is that when searching for a good on the internet electronics retail outlet, look for a website with complete information on critical indicators such as the level of privacy statement, basic safety details, payment procedures, along with other terms in addition to policies. Always take time to browse the help as well as FAQ segments to get a better idea of what sort of shop works, what they are able to do for you, and the way you can make best use of the features.
