🤟 Welcome! Till now, we have dealt enough with numbers. Now is the time to add Unicode to our arsenal.😎
Unicode in Python
Python and Java support Unicode characters.😃 The
ord() method converts a character into its Unicode code. It takes one argument: a string containing a single Unicode character. In other words, given string of length 1, the function returns an integer giving it's corresponding Unicode value. For example,
ord('a') returns the integer 97,
ord('€') (Euro sign) returns 8364.
Here is a sample which takes 10 characters and prints their Unicode values-
for i in range(-5,5):#same as (0,10) a=input("Please enter any character ") print(ord(a))
Here is a output-
Please enter any character Z 90 Please enter any character e 101 Please enter any character p 112 Please enter any character h 104 Please enter any character y 121 Please enter any character r 114 Please enter any character 1 49 Please enter any character 2 50 Please enter any character # 35 Please enter any character $ 36
Try it out with your names too!!!
chr() function does just the opposite as the
ord() function. It converts integers into Unicode characters. Example if we input 97, the output will be 'a', and
Here is a sample program print Unicode characters-
for i in range(0,4): n1=int(input("Please enter lower limit ")) n2=int(input("Please enter upper limit ")) for i in range(n1,n2): print(i," ",chr(i))
Now let us input some values. OUTPUT-
Please enter lower limit 33 Please enter upper limit 37 33 ! 34 " 35 # 36 $ Please enter lower limit 57 Please enter upper limit 62 57 9 58 : 59 ; 60 < 61 = Please enter lower limit 85 Please enter upper limit 89 85 U 86 V 87 W 88 X Please enter lower limit 97 Please enter upper limit 103 97 a 98 b 99 c 100 d 101 e 102 f
Here is another sample to prove that
chr() are absolutely opposite of each other
Istrue=True #Istrue is a boolean value with value default True for i in range(1,1000): a=chr(i) if(i!=ord(a)): Istrue=False print(Istrue)
Exercise 1) If we interchange
chr(), will the program still work? Answer: NO
2) Write a program to give the following output-
Please enter any capital letter G A B C D E F G A B C D E F G A B C D E F G A B C D E F G A B C D E F G A B C D E F G A B C D E F G
3) Modify the above program slightly to give the following output.
Please enter any capital letter G A A B A B C A B C D A B C D E A B C D E F A B C D E F G
4) Modify the above program to give the following output-
Please enter any capital letter K A B A C B A D C B A E D C B A F E D C B A G F E D C B A H G F E D C B A I H G F E D C B A J I H G F E D C B A K J I H G F E D C B A
The programs may look repetitive, but trust me, they provide a good practice for practicing nested for loops.
