Python Strings – A rough guide
Anything stored in single or double quotes is seen as a string in Python, lets see some examples:
print "I am a string" print 'I am a string'
Both result in
I am a string
We can construct strings using variables by adding + to patch them together:
name = 'John' surname = "Player" print "Hi, my first name is " + name + ' and my surname is ' + surname
Hi, my first name is John and my surname is Player
Although mixing single and double quotes is a dickmove! Stick with doubles, it helps readability.
To confirm that the above is actually a string, you can use printand typetogether:
print type("Hi, my first name is " + name + ' and my surname is ' + surname)
The output will be:
Confirming that the data type is in fact a string.
