Python | Divide the given string into equal halves



Method # 1: Using List Comprehension + Line Slices
This is a naive method to accomplish this particular task. In this we just use rough divisions and slices to separate the first and last part of the line.

# Python3 code to demonstrate how it works
# Splitting the line into equal halves
# Using comprehension list + line slice

 
# initialization string

test_str = "GeeksforGeeks"

 
# print original line

print ( "The original string is:" + test_str)

  
# Using comprehension list + line slice
# Splitting line into equal halves

res_first = test_str [ 0 : len (test_str) / / 2 ]

res_second = test_str [ len (test_str) / / 2 if len (test_str) % 2 = = 0

else (( len (test_str) / / 2 ) + 1 ):]

 
# print result

print ( "The first part of string:" + res_first)

print ( " The second part of string: " + res_second)

Output:

 The original string is: Python.Engineering The first part of string: Geeksf The second part of string: rGeeks 

Method # 2: Using string slicing
To to overcome the shortcomings of the above method and find a more elegant solution, we use string slicing to accomplish this specific task.

# Python3 code to demonstrate how it works
# Splitting a line into equal halves
# Using line slicing

 
# initialization string

test_str = "GeeksforGeeks"

 
# print original line

print ( "The original string is:" + test_str)

  
# Using line slicing
# Splitting a line into equal halves

res_first, res_second = test_str [: len (test_str) / / 2 ], 

test_str [ len (test_str) / / 2 :]

  
# print result

print ( "The first part of string:" + res_first)

print ( "The second part of string:" + res_second)

Output:

 The original string is: Python.Engineering The first part of string: Geeksf The second part of string: orGeeks
