The Python string type is much more than it appears. This lesson covers the fundamentals of string methods and formatting.
- [Instructor] In Python 3,…all types are classes, even the built-in types.…Mostly this fact is transparent, you'll never notice it.…In the case of the string type, it's very useful to know.…Here in Komodo, I've opened a working copy of types.py…from Chapter 3 of the exercise files.…We'll go into much more detail…about string objects in a later chapter,…but for now it's good to understand a few common patterns.…First of all,…let me change this 7 to the word seven in a string.…
You notice that the string is wrapped in single quote marks.…And when I save and run this,…we have the x is seven and the type's str,…which is the internal string type.…But it's good to know that the single quotes…is a style choice.…Double quotes are exactly the same.…If I save and run this,…you see we have exactly the same result.…There is no difference between single quotes…and double quotes in Python.…In some languages double quotes are interpolated,…single quotes are not, or there may be other distinctions.…
In Python, there is no difference whatsoever.…
