Modification of python string

How to change or delete a string?

Strings are immutable. This means that elements of a string cannot be changed once it has been assigned. We can simply reassign different strings to the same name.
n=”computer”
print(n)
computer
n[2]=’r’
print(n)

#error: TypeError: ‘str’ object does not support item assignment

Note: we can assign the string by another value but cannot change any character by using index.

n=”computer”
print(n)
n=’hello’
print(n)
computer
hello

n="computer"
print(n)
computer
n[2]='r'
print(n)

Output:

computer
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python37\tt1.py", line 3, in <module>
    computer
NameError: name 'computer' is not defined
>>> 
n="computer"
print(n)
n='hello'
print(n)

Output:

computer
hello
>>> 

Deletion of characters from a string

We cannot delete or remove characters from a string. But deleting the string entirely is possible using the keyword del.

n=”computer”
print(n)
computer
del n[1]
#Error :TypeError: ‘str’ object doesn’t support item deletion
print(n)

But we can delete the entire string

n=”computer”
print(n)
del n
print(n)
Note:
Error :NameError: name ‘n’ is not defined

n="computer"
print(n)
del n[1]
print(n)

Output:

computer
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python37\tt1.py", line 3, in <module>
    del n[1]
TypeError: 'str' object doesn't support item deletion
>>> 
n="computer"
print(n)
del n
print(n)

Output:

computer
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python37\tt1.py", line 4, in <module>
    print(n)
NameError: name 'n' is not defined
>>> 



Python String Operations

There are many operations that can be performed with string which makes it one of the most used datatypes in Python.

Concatenation of Two or More Strings

Joining two or more strings into a single one is called concatenation.
The + operator does this in Python. Simply writing two string literals together also concatenates them.
The * operator can be used to repeat the string for a given number of times.

str1 = ‘Hello’
str2 =’World!’

# using +

print(‘str1 + str2 = ‘, str1 + str2)
Output:
str1 + str2 = HelloWorld!

# using *

print(‘str1 * 3 =’, str1 * 3)
Output:
str1 * 3 = HelloHelloHello
