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

19 Top Unix File Scenario Commands

ETL developers main task is to browse various flat files before they start testing. File browsing in UNIX is tricky. If you know right command to do it you can save a lot of time. These 19 top UNIX files commands useful to use in your project. In UNIX a file normally can have Header, Detail and Trailer. There are scenarios where you need only details without header and Trailer, and need only recent one record, and you need to skip some records from the input files. So for all the File based scenarios, I have given useful UNIX commands.   1). How to print/display the first line of a file?  There are many ways to do this. However the easiest way to display the first line of a file is using the [head] command.  $> head -1 file. Txt If you specify [head -2] then it would print first 2 records of the file.  Another way can be by using [sed] command. [sed] is a very powerful text editor which can be used for various text manipulation purposes like this.  $> sed '2,$ d
