How to Compare Text in Python

Image
Python like other programming languages supports comparison operators. These primarily use to test the condition in the program. Here's a list of operators that you can use in python programs. Comparison operators List of operators < <= > >= == != Is is not How to use comparison operators Here, I have assigned 23 to a and 11 to b. Then, I did apply all the comparison operators. The output is self-explanatory, and If you are in doubt while programming, remember to visit this page. Examples a = 23 b = 11 print("Is a greater than b?", a > b)           #greater than print("Is a less than b?", a < b)              #less than print("Is a greater or equal to b?", a >= b)   #greater or equal print("Is a less or equal to b?", a <= b)      #less or equal print("Is a equal to b (option 1)?", a == b)         #test for equality print("Is a equal to b (option 2)?", a is b)         #test for equality print("I

How to Write Recursive Shell Script in Bash Terminal

Image
Here's a simple bash recursive function. To write it, you can use JavaScript and other scripting languages. Below is the example that shows you how to write a recursive function in the bash shell. Recursive function Precisely, calling the same function within it is called the Recursive function. We call itself and its contents.  Moreover, the recursive functions go in the loop due to self-calling. While writing the code, ensure it has a condition that breaks the loop. Recursive logic #!/bin/bash for ((i = 1; i < 65; i++)) { ((arr[i - 1] = i)) } i = 1; key = 8 function linear_search { echo "Element value: ${arr[$i-1]}" if ((arr[i - 1] == key)) then echo "Linear search found $key on attempt $i" return 0 => it breaks the loop else ((i++)) linear_search = > Calling th same script fi } linear_search = > Calling the same script Output Here is the dissection of the output. Displayed the array's elements until match-condition occurs. In the end, a displa

Here is Sample Logic to get Random numbers in Bash

Here's a bash script to generate a random number. You can use this logic to generate a random number, and it is useful for AWS engineers. Random number Script - Here's sample logic to get a random number RANDOM=$$ # Set the seed to the PID of the script UPPER_LIMIT=$1 RANDOM_NUMBER=$(($RANDOM % $UPPER_LIMIT + 1)) echo "$RANDOM_NUMBER" If you select UPPER_LIMIT as 100, then the result would be a pseudo-random number between 1 and 100. Her is the output after executing the script Related posts Structured Vs. Un-structured data
