How to Compare Text in Python

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

These Tips Helpful to Remove Python List and Dictionary Duplicates

In this post, I have shared top ideas to remove duplicates from the list. Those are with Append and Dictionary. 1. How to Remove Duplicates with Append # Here is a list with duplicates list_with_duplicates = [1,2,3,12,1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,7,8,9] It is simple if you follow the first-approach - brute force approach: list_without_duplicates = [] for pd in list_with_duplicates:   if pd not in list_without_duplicates:       list_without_duplicates.append(pd) print(list_without_duplicates) Result: [1, 2, 3, 12, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9] This method has performance issues when the list is bigger in size.  Real-time. 2. How to Remove Duplicates with Dictionary # Here is you can convert a list to a dictionary dict_without_duplicates = dict(zip(list_with_duplicates, list_with_duplicates)) print(dictionary_without_duplicates) Result: {1: 1, 2: 2, 3: 3, 12: 12, 4: 4, 5: 5, 6: 6, 7: 7, 8: 8, 9: 9} Real-time. Once again, this works and has the advantage of taking less space than duplicating the entire list.
