Example text

Example 2-3. count('C') The definition is followed by a blank line. What is significant is not that the line is blank but that it is not indented to a position beyond that of the def that begins the definition. , the line following the one that ends with a colon. Comments and Documentation The # character tells Python to ignore the rest of the line. This convention can be used for a short comment following the code on a line, or for a more extensive comment consisting of one or more lines beginning with a #.

Help for a type generally includes a long list of things that are part of the type’s implementation but not its general use, indicated by names beginning with underscores Occasionally your code needs to test whether a value is an instance of a certain type; for example, it may do one thing with strings and another with numbers. You can do this with the following built-in function: isinstance(x, sometype) Returns True if x is an instance of the type (class) sometype, and False otherwise Method calls Many different types of values can be supplied as arguments to Python’s built-in functions.

For example, '' and 'A' evaluates to '', not False, while '' or 'A' evaluates to 'A', not True. We’ll see examples later of idioms based on this behavior. • Function calls are both expressions and statements. • Experiment with using the sep and end keyword arguments to print. They give you more control over your output. The default is to separate every argument by a space and end with a newline. • A method call is simply a function call with its first argument moved before the function name, followed by a period.
