Strings and Character Data in Python
In this course, you’ll learn about working with strings, which are objects that contain sequences of character data. Processing character data is integral to programming. It is a rare application that doesn’t need to manipulate strings to at least some extent.
Python provides a rich set of operators, functions, and methods for working with strings. When you’re finished this course, you’ll know how to:
- Use operators with strings
- Access and extract portions of strings
- Use built-in Python functions with characters and strings
- Use methods to manipulate and modify string data
You’ll also be introduced to two other Python objects used to represent raw byte data: the bytes and bytearray types.
