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

The Story behind Mainframe to Cloud Real Journey

Image
Mainframe to CLOUD: Mainframe computing took off in the 1950s and gained much prominence throughout the 1960s. Corporations such as IBM (International Business Machines), Univac, DEC (Digital Equipment Corporation), and Control Data Corporation started developing powerful mainframe systems. Gettyimage.in These mainframe systems mainly carried out number-crunching for scientists and engineers. The main programming language used was Fortran. Then in the 1960s, the notion of database systems was conceived and corporations developed database systems based on the network and hierarchical data models. The database applications at that time were written mainly in COBOL. Cloud Vs Mainframe In the 1970s, corporations such as DEC created the notion of mini-computers. An example is DEC's VAX machine. These machines were much smaller than the mainframe systems. Around that time, terminals were developed. This way, programmers did not have to go to computing centers and use punch cards
