How to Work With Tuple in Python

Image
Tuple in python is one of the streaming datasets. The other streaming datasets are List and Dictionary. Operations that you can perform on it are shown here for your reference. Writing tuple is easy. It has values of comma separated, and enclosed with parenthesis '()'. The values in the tuple are immutable, which means you cannot replace with new values. #1. How to create a tuple Code: my_tuple=(1,2,3,4,5) print(my_tuple) Output: (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) ** Process exited - Return Code: 0 ** Press Enter to exit terminal #2. How to read tuple values Code: print(my_tuple[0]) Output: 1 ** Process exited - Return Code: 0 ** Press Enter to exit terminal #3. How to add two tuples Code: a=(1,6,7,8) c=(3,4,5,6,7,8) d=print(a+c) Output: (1, 6, 7, 8, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) ** Process exited - Return Code: 0 ** Press Enter to exit terminal #4.  How to count tuple values Here the count is not counting values; count the repetition of a given value. Code: sample=(1, 6, 7, 8, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) print(sample

Python placeholder '_' Perfect Way to Use it

What is placeholder in Python? The purpose of it is to mask the variable that you don't want to use in a function. In python, you can call the underscore ( _ ) operator placeholder. Below, you'll find how to use single and double placeholders in a function.


Python placeholder


What is placeholder in python

The purpose of placeholder in Python is to mask variables that you don't want to use in a function. So that your code will be readable. Moreover, in future, if you want to use those variables you can replace the placeholders with the names you want.

You'll know in three steps how to use placeholder correctly.
  1. Creating a function
  2. Logic to use single placeholder
  3. Logic to use two placeholders

1. Creating a function.


def function_that_returns_multiple_values(x): 
      return x*2, x*3, x+1 
      for i in range(0,5): 
           square, cube, added_one = function_that_returns_multiple_values(i) 
           print(square, cube)

Here, in print, it returns two variables. I will show you how to mask the unused third variable [added_one] in the below example.

2. Logic to use single placeholder


def function_that_returns_multiple_values(x): 
      return x*2, x*3, x+1 
      for i in range(0,5): 
            square, cube, _ = function_that_returns_multiple_values(i) 
            print(square, cube)

3. Logic to use two placeholders

for i in range(0,5): 
     square, _, _ = function_that_returns_multiple_values(i)
