In Python, isspace () — it is a built-in method used to process strings. The isspace () methods return True if all characters in the string are whitespace, otherwise it returns False.
This function is used to check if the argument contains all whitespace characters, such as:
string.isspace () Parameters: isspace () does not take any parameters Returns: 1.True- If all characters in the string are whitespace characters. 2.False- If the string contains 1 or more non-whitespace characters.
Input: string = 'Geeksforgeeks' Output: False Input: string =' 'Output: True Input: string =' Geeks For Geeks 'Output: False
| tr> |
False True False
For a given string in python, count the number of whitespace characters in the string.
Input: string = 'My name is Ayush' Output: 3 Input: string =' My name is Ayush' Output: 8
1. Go through the given line character by character to its length, check if the character is a space.
2. If it is a whitespace character, increment the counter by 1, otherwise go to the next character.
3. Print the counter value.
def is_not_blank(s): return bool(s and not s.isspace())
print is_not_blank("") # False print is_not_blank(" ") # False print is_not_blank("ok") # True print is_not_blank(None) # False
Trueif there are only whitespace characters in the string and there is at least one character,
A character is whitespace if in the Unicode character database (see unicodedata), either its general category is Zs (‚ÄúSeparator, space‚Äù), or its bidirectional class is one of WS, B, or S.
Combine that with a special case for handling the empty string.
Alternatively, you could use
str.strip() and check if the result is empty.
Why not use
title Right from the docs:
>>> "they"re bill"s friends from the UK".title() "They"Re Bill"S Friends From The Uk"
If you really wanted PascalCase you can use this:
>>> "".join(x for x in "make IT pascal CaSe".title() if not x.isspace()) "MakeItPascalCase"
