Scraping Website: How to Write a Script in Python

Here's a python script that you can use as a model to scrape a website. Python script The below logic uses BeautifulSoup Package for web scraping. import requests from bs4 import BeautifulSoup url = 'https://www.example.com' response = requests.get(url) soup = BeautifulSoup(response.text, 'html.parser') # Print the title of the webpage print(soup.title.text) # Print all the links in the webpage for link in soup.find_all('a'):     print(link.get('href')) In this script, we first import the Requests and Beautiful Soup libraries. We then define the URL we want to scrape and use the Requests library to send a GET request to that URL. We then pass the response text to Beautiful Soup to parse the HTML contents of the webpage. We then use Beautiful Soup to extract the title of the webpage and print it to the console. We also use a for loop to find all the links in the webpage and print their href attributes to the console. This is just a basic example, but

How to Write Recursive Function in Python Quickly

Here's an example to write RECURSIVE function in Python. It acts like a loop that iterate within the function to perform some operation. Precisely, if you call the same function from function is called recursive function.  

Recursion in Python

Python recursive function

Here are four rules a developer should know before writing recursive function in Python:

  1. There must be a key variable, which will be responsible for the termination of recursion.
  2. To determine the base value, which the key variable has to meet to reach the termination.
  3. To make sure the key variable must approach the base value in every recursive call.
  4. To make the recursive function terminate when the key variable reaches the base value.

Python recursive example

Here is an example python recursive function.

# This program computes the factorial of a number using recursion
#function definition
def fact(n):
"computes factorial using recursion"
if n == 0:
    return 1
else :
    return n * fact(n - 1)

# Function call
num = input("enter a number:")
num = int(num)
result = fact(num)
print("factorial=", result)


Here are the advantages of recursive function.
  • Recursive functions divide the problem into smaller similar fragments and then computes them.
  • The recursive code looks precise and cleaner as compared to using loops. Here is how to call SQL from python


Here are the disadvantages of recursive function.
  • It's hard to develop
  • Its is hard to understand the recursive functions
