How to Remove Punctuation in Python

String management is one of Python’s most important features. String manipulation in most languages can be a complex and tedious process. But with Python we can easily perform quite complex functions on strings with only a small amount of code. For example, consider a situation where we want to remove punctuation character from a string. […]

How to Find Intersection in a Python List

Python list intersection is one of the more advanced techniques within the language. We don’t have any built-in functions or methods to accomplish that task. However, by achieving that goal we can truly experience Python’s power and flexibility. Even without any built-in functionality, we can typically find intersections without needing to write much code. Consider […]

How to Find Index of Occurrences in a Python List

Imagine a situation where you wanted to find every occurrence of something within a Python list. It can seem a little daunting at first. It certainly would be a complex task in many programming languages. But we’ll soon see that it’s surprisingly easy to manage this task in a Python program. The following Python code […]

How to Count Unique Values in a Python List

Working with large amounts of data can come with some inherent issues. One of the most common problems stems from duplicate values. We often need to take special note of how often an item comes up within our records. Python makes it fairly easy to do so within the context of the list data type. […]

How to Find the Sum of a Python List

One of the best things about Python is the language’s sheer flexibility. We have a wide range of elements and containers to work with. And we can often manipulate those items in a wide variety of useful ways. For example, we can find the cumulative sum of a python list despite the fact that it’s […]

How to Check if an Element is in a Python List

Python has a reputation as a programming language that does things a little differently than one might expect. Lists are one of the best examples of this philosophy. In theory, Python program lists are quite similar to arrays in other languages. But in practice, a list’s versatility makes it extremely powerful. For example, consider how […]

How to Convert String to Python List

Python is well known as one of the more versatile programming languages. This is in large part due to how the language handles data type structures. Strings and lists are two perfect examples of Python’s flexibility. Strings in Python programming are generally analogous to the same variable in other languages. Meanwhile, lists are quite similar […]

How to Change Set to List in Python

Sets and lists are two important elements of the Python programming language. At first glance, they might even seem identical to each other. We assign both sets and lists in a similar manner. Sets and lists can also contain similar data types. We can contain a string or integer within each. We even access components […]

How to Find the Last Element in a Python List

Python lists are one of the most important parts of the language. They’re functionally similar to the arrays found in other programming languages. However, a Python list is often far more flexible and easy to work with than other language’s arrays. This often means that we have multiple options for even fundamental procedures such as […]

How to Change Array to List Python

One of the great things about Python is how easy it is to expand. By using libraries like NumPy we can essentially combine Python’s ease of use with a large selection of additional math-based functionality. However, this sometimes brings about odd situations where we have multiple data types that are similar but not quite equivalent. […]
