Strings and Characters

Creating Strings

  • We can create a string in Python by assigning a group of characters to a variable. The group of characters should be enclosed inside single quotes or double quotes.

                   s = 'Welcome to Programmer Fect'

                   s1 = "Welcome to Programmer Fect"



Length of a String

  • Length of a string represents the number of characters in a string.

  • To know the length a string, we can use the len( ) function.

  • This function gives the number of characters including spaces in the string.
