How to change string variable with self correcting code python

Python String

In this example, we are going to understand How to change string variables with self-correcting code in Python with examples. We need to use the f-string literal as the latest way to format a string in python. So first we will go through the f-string and its different ways to change the variable value at runtime.

Ways used before f-string to format String


  • % formatting
  • str.format() method

Because of some limitations of these methods “fstring literal was introduced in python version 3.6.

How to use % formatting


In this example, we have shown how to use % formatting and Its limitation. It does not display dictionary and tuple correctly.

Python Program Example

name = "Max"
greet ="Good Morning!"
 
print("Hi, %s. Welcome, %s."%(name,greet))

Output

Hi, Max. Welcome, Good Morning!

How to use str.format()


In this example, we have shown how to use str.format(). It was added in python version 2.6.

Python Program Example

name = "Max"
greet ="Good Morning!"
 
print("Hi, {}. Welcome, {}.".format(name, greet))


Output

Hi, Max. Welcome, Good Morning!

What is f-string in Python


Python version 3.6 introduced the formatted string literal also known as “f-string”.The “f-string” is used for formatting the string and is easy to use and readable. To use it we have to start the string with “F” or “F” before quotation marks and write a python expression or variable that contains literal values between { } that are evaluated at runtime. The f-string controls the final output of the formatted string.

1. F-string to change string variable with self-correcting code


In this example, we have two string variables name and greet, We are formatting the string by using f-string literal at the start before the quotation mark. We have passed variables in between { } theses variable values are evaluated at runtime and how we can your final format string.

Python Program Example

name = "Max"
greet ="Good Morning!"
 
print( f"Hi, {name}. Welcome, {greet}.")



Output

Hi, Max. Welcome, Good Morning!.

2. F-string to change variable with self-correcting code to evalulate Expression


In this example, instead of variables, we have evaluated an expression by passing the expression between {}. All the given expressions will evaluate at runtime.

Python Program Example

print( f"{10* 2}")
print( f"{10+2}")
print( f"{10-6}")
print( f"{10%2}")
print( f"{10+5+6-8}")


Output

20
12
4
0
13

3. F-string in Class to change string variable with self-correcting code


In this example, we have defined a class, People where we have passed three arguments(full_name, country, age) in its constructor. The class constructor is called itself we create an instance of the class.

  • Here we have created the instance/object of class newppl with all given parameters in the class constructor,
  • so all the code is written in the class constructor we called.
  • The f-string literal is used to format the string variable in the class constructor.
  • The value of these variable will evaluate at runtime we will get our formatted string

Python Program Example

class People:
    def __init__(self, fUll_name, country, age):
        self.fUll_name = fUll_name
        self.country = country
        self.age = age

    def __str__(self):
        return f"You are welcome {self.fUll_name},Country is :{self.country}, age is : {self.age}."

    



newppl = People("Max", "United State", "55")
print(f"{newppl}")

Output

You are welcome Max,Country is :United State, age is 55.

4. f-string in function to change a string variable with self-correcting code


In this example, we have defined two methods Get_greet(inputStr) and Getname(name) calling this method by using f-string literal. To call we have to pass the method name between { } brackets and pass an argument to the method

The output return by these methods is evaluated at runtime.

Python Program Example

def Get_greet(inputStr):
     return inputStr

    
def Getname(name):
     return name


myname = "Simon Max"
greet = "Good Morning!"

print(f"{Get_greet(greet)} {Getname(myname)}")

Output

Good Morning! Simon Max

Summary

In this post, we have how to change string variable with self-correcting code python with example by using different method % formatting, str.format() method and “f-string” literal in Python.
