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

3 Best Methods to Read Files in Python

Python supports three specific methods to read files- read, readline, readlines. All these you use on files. Each has its unique purpose. Below are the best examples. 3 Methods to read file read readline readlines Method-1: read It reads records from file in sequence. Here, file.txt is sample file with single row. file.txt abcdefghijk file_object.read(2) ==> you will get 'ab' file_object.read(4)  ===> you will get 'cdef' Here, the multiple read methods read the data in sequence. The read(x) method will read only the number of characters that mentioned in the read method. Again, if you give multiple read methods then it will read in sequence. Method-2: readline It reads the file line by line. Here, file.txt is a file with single row. file.txt abcdefghijk f ile_object.readline() ==> you will get ' abcdefghijk ' Here, it reads the file line by line. Method-3: readlines It reads all the records at a time. Here, file.txt is a file with two rows. file.txt ab
