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

Text Vs. Binary Vs. UTF-8 Top differences

Here are the differences between Text files, Binary files, and UTF-8. These would help understanding files correctly for beginners. Text File It contains plain text characters. When you open a text file in a text editor, it displays human-readable content.  The text may not be in a language you know or understand, but you will see mostly normal characters that you can type at any keyboard. Binary File It stores information in bytes that aren’t quite so human readable.  If you open the binary file in a text editor, it will not be readable. UTF-8 UTF-8 is short for Unicode Transformation Format, 8-bit, and is a standardized way to represent letters and numbers on computers. The original ASCII set of characters, which contains mostly uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and punctuation marks, worked okay in the early days of computing. But when other languages were brought into the mix, these characters were just not enough. Many standards for dealing with other languages have been p
