How to check string immutability

Here is an example. In the python shell, assign a value of your choice to a string. Here my choice is ABCD, and I have assigned it to myString. I have tried to replace A with Z. But, it gave an error due to the immutability of strings.


>>> myString = 'ABCD'
>>>myString [0] = 'Z'


What is learning here

The strings immutability is an interview question. In interviews, you can say that strings are immutable, and you can't replace its data.

  1. It saves a lot of time since the data in strings are immutable. It results in high performance.
  2. String objects you can reuse as no one can modify its value.
  3. Strings are elemental. So no activity can change its value ( these are more like numbers).
