Let's get started!

## What are Python Arrays?

Arrays are a fundamental data structure, and an important part of most programming languages. In Python, they are containers which are able to store more than one item at the same time.

Specifically, they are an ordered collection of elements with every value being of the same data type. That is the most important thing to remember about Python arrays - the fact that they can only hold a sequence of multiple items that are of the same type.

### What's the Difference between Python Lists and Python Arrays?

Lists are one of the most common data structures in Python, and a core part of the language.

Lists and arrays behave similarly.

Just like arrays, lists are an ordered sequence of elements.

They are also mutable and not fixed in size, which means they can grow and shrink throughout the life of the program. Items can be added and removed, making them very flexible to work with.

However, lists and arrays are not the same thing.

Lists store items that are of various data types. This means that a list can contain integers, floating point numbers, strings, or any other Python data type, at the same time. That is not the case with arrays.

As mentioned in the section above, arrays store only items that are of the same single data type. There are arrays that contain only integers, or only floating point numbers, or only any other Python data type you want to use.

### When to Use Python Arrays

Lists are built into the Python programming language, whereas arrays aren't. Arrays are not a built-in data structure, and therefore need to be imported via the `array module` in order to be used.

Arrays of the `array module` are a thin wrapper over C arrays, and are useful when you want to work with homogeneous data.

They are also more compact and take up less memory and space which makes them more size efficient compared to lists.

If you want to perform mathematical calculations, then you should use NumPy arrays by importing the NumPy package. Besides that, you should just use Python arrays when you really need to, as lists work in a similar way and are more flexible to work with.

## How to Use Arrays in Python

In order to create Python arrays, you'll first have to import the `array module` which contains all the necassary functions.

There are three ways you can import the `array module`:

• By using `import array` at the top of the file. This includes the module `array`. You would then go on to create an array using `array.array()`.
``````import array

#how you would create an array
array.array()``````
• Instead of having to type `array.array()` all the time, you could use `import array as arr` at the top of the file, instead of `import array` alone. You would then create an array by typing `arr.array()`. The `arr` acts as an alias name, with the array constructor then immediately following it.
``````import array as arr

#how you would create an array
arr.array()``````
• Lastly, you could also use `from array import *`, with `*` importing all the functionalities available. You would then create an array by writing the `array()` constructor alone.
``````from array import *

#how you would create an array
array()``````

### How to Define Arrays in Python

Once you've imported the `array module`, you can then go on to define a Python array.

The general syntax for creating an array looks like this:

``variable_name = array(typecode,[elements])``

Let's break it down:

• `variable_name` would be the name of the array.
• The `typecode` specifies what kind of elements would be stored in the array. Whether it would be an array of integers, an array of floats or an array of any other Python data type. Remember that all elements should be of the same data type.
• Inside square brackets you mention the `elements` that would be stored in the array, with each element being separated by a comma. You can also create an empty array by just writing `variable_name = array(typecode)` alone, without any elements.

Below is a typecode table, with the different typecodes that can be used with the different data types when defining Python arrays:

Tying everything together, here is an example of how you would define an array in Python:

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [10, 20, 30])``````

Let's break it down:

• First we included the array module, in this case with `import array as arr `.
• Then, we created a `numbers` array.
• We used `arr.array()` because of `import array as arr `.
• Inside the `array()` constructor, we first included `i`, for signed integer. Signed integer means that the array can include positive and negative values. Unsigned integer, with `H` for example, would mean that no negative values are allowed.
• Lastly, we included the values to be stored in the array in square brackets.

Keep in mind that if you tried to include values that were not of `i` typecode, meaning they were not integer values, you would get an error:

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10.0,20,30])

print(numbers)

#output

#Traceback (most recent call last):
# File "/Users/dionysialemonaki/python_articles/demo.py", line 14, in <module>
#   numbers = arr.array('i',[10.0,20,30])
#TypeError: 'float' object cannot be interpreted as an integer``````

In the example above, I tried to include a floating point number in the array. I got an error because this is meant to be an integer array only.

Another way to create an array is the following:

``````from array import *

#an array of floating point values
numbers = array('d',[10.0,20.0,30.0])

print(numbers)

#output

#array('d', [10.0, 20.0, 30.0])``````

The example above imported the `array module` via `from array import *` and created an array `numbers` of float data type. This means that it holds only floating point numbers, which is specified with the `'d'` typecode.

### How to Find the Length of an Array in Python

To find out the exact number of elements contained in an array, use the built-in `len()` method.

It will return the integer number that is equal to the total number of elements in the array you specify.

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

print(len(numbers))

#output
# 3``````

In the example above, the array contained three elements – `10, 20, 30` – so the length of `numbers` is `3`.

### Array Indexing and How to Access Individual Items in an Array in Python

Each item in an array has a specific address. Individual items are accessed by referencing their index number.

Indexing in Python, and in all programming languages and computing in general, starts at `0`. It is important to remember that counting starts at `0` and not at `1`.

To access an element, you first write the name of the array followed by square brackets. Inside the square brackets you include the item's index number.

The general syntax would look something like this:

``array_name[index_value_of_item]``

Here is how you would access each individual element in an array:

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

print(numbers[0]) # gets the 1st element
print(numbers[1]) # gets the 2nd element
print(numbers[2]) # gets the 3rd element

#output

#10
#20
#30``````

Remember that the index value of the last element of an array is always one less than the length of the array. Where `n` is the length of the array, `n - 1` will be the index value of the last item.

Note that you can also access each individual element using negative indexing.

With negative indexing, the last element would have an index of `-1`, the second to last element would have an index of `-2`, and so on.

Here is how you would get each item in an array using that method:

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

print(numbers[-1]) #gets last item
print(numbers[-2]) #gets second to last item
print(numbers[-3]) #gets first item

#output

#30
#20
#10``````

### How to Search Through an Array in Python

You can find out an element's index number by using the `index()` method.

You pass the value of the element being searched as the argument to the method, and the element's index number is returned.

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#search for the index of the value 10
print(numbers.index(10))

#output

#0``````

If there is more than one element with the same value, the index of the first instance of the value will be returned:

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30,10,20,30])

#search for the index of the value 10
#will return the index number of the first instance of the value 10
print(numbers.index(10))

#output

#0``````

### How to Loop through an Array in Python

You've seen how to access each individual element in an array and print it out on its own.

You've also seen how to print the array, using the `print()` method. That method gives the following result:

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [10, 20, 30])``````

What if you want to print each value one by one?

This is where a loop comes in handy. You can loop through the array and print out each value, one-by-one, with each loop iteration.

For this you can use a simple `for` loop:

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

for number in numbers:
print(number)

#output
#10
#20
#30``````

You could also use the `range()` function, and pass the `len()` method as its parameter. This would give the same result as above:

``````import array as arr

values = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#prints each individual value in the array
for value in range(len(values)):
print(values[value])

#output

#10
#20
#30``````

### How to Slice an Array in Python

To access a specific range of values inside the array, use the slicing operator, which is a colon `:`.

When using the slicing operator and you only include one value, the counting starts from `0` by default. It gets the first item, and goes up to but not including the index number you specify.

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#get the values 10 and 20 only
print(numbers[:2])  #first to second position

#output

#array('i', [10, 20])``````

When you pass two numbers as arguments, you specify a range of numbers. In this case, the counting starts at the position of the first number in the range, and up to but not including the second one:

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#get the values 20 and 30 only
print(numbers[1:3]) #second to third position

#output

#rray('i', [20, 30])``````

## Methods For Performing Operations on Arrays in Python

Arrays are mutable, which means they are changeable. You can change the value of the different items, add new ones, or remove any you don't want in your program anymore.

Let's see some of the most commonly used methods which are used for performing operations on arrays.

### How to Change the Value of an Item in an Array

You can change the value of a specific element by speficying its position and assigning it a new value:

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#change the first element
#change it from having a value of 10 to having a value of 40
numbers[0] = 40

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [40, 20, 30])``````

### How to Add a New Value to an Array

To add one single value at the end of an array, use the `append()` method:

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#add the integer 40 to the end of numbers
numbers.append(40)

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [10, 20, 30, 40])``````

Be aware that the new item you add needs to be the same data type as the rest of the items in the array.

Look what happens when I try to add a float to an array of integers:

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#add the integer 40 to the end of numbers
numbers.append(40.0)

print(numbers)

#output

#Traceback (most recent call last):
#  File "/Users/dionysialemonaki/python_articles/demo.py", line 19, in <module>
#   numbers.append(40.0)
#TypeError: 'float' object cannot be interpreted as an integer``````

But what if you want to add more than one value to the end an array?

Use the `extend()` method, which takes an iterable (such as a list of items) as an argument. Again, make sure that the new items are all the same data type.

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#add the integers 40,50,60 to the end of numbers
#The numbers need to be enclosed in square brackets

numbers.extend([40,50,60])

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60])``````

And what if you don't want to add an item to the end of an array? Use the `insert()` method, to add an item at a specific position.

The `insert()` function takes two arguments: the index number of the position the new element will be inserted, and the value of the new element.

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#add the integer 40 in the first position
#remember indexing starts at 0

numbers.insert(0,40)

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [40, 10, 20, 30])``````

### How to Remove a Value from an Array

To remove an element from an array, use the `remove()` method and include the value as an argument to the method.

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

numbers.remove(10)

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [20, 30])``````

With `remove()`, only the first instance of the value you pass as an argument will be removed.

See what happens when there are more than one identical values:

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30,10,20])

numbers.remove(10)

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [20, 30, 10, 20])``````

Only the first occurence of `10` is removed.

You can also use the `pop()` method, and specify the position of the element to be removed:

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30,10,20])

#remove the first instance of 10
numbers.pop(0)

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [20, 30, 10, 20])``````

## What are Python Arrays?

Arrays are a fundamental data structure, and an important part of most programming languages. In Python, they are containers which are able to store more than one item at the same time.

Specifically, they are an ordered collection of elements with every value being of the same data type. That is the most important thing to remember about Python arrays - the fact that they can only hold a sequence of multiple items that are of the same type.

They are also mutable and not fixed in size, which means they can grow and shrink throughout the life of the program. Items can be added and removed, making them very flexible to work with.

However, lists and arrays are not the same thing.

Lists store items that are of various data types. This means that a list can contain integers, floating point numbers, strings, or any other Python data type, at the same time. That is not the case with arrays.

As mentioned in the section above, arrays store only items that are of the same single data type. There are arrays that contain only integers, or only floating point numbers, or only any other Python data type you want to use.

Arrays of the `array module` are a thin wrapper over C arrays, and are useful when you want to work with homogeneous data.

They are also more compact and take up less memory and space which makes them more size efficient compared to lists.

If you want to perform mathematical calculations, then you should use NumPy arrays by importing the NumPy package. Besides that, you should just use Python arrays when you really need to, as lists work in a similar way and are more flexible to work with.

## How to Use Arrays in Python

In order to create Python arrays, you'll first have to import the `array module` which contains all the necassary functions.

There are three ways you can import the `array module`:

1. By using `import array` at the top of the file. This includes the module `array`. You would then go on to create an array using `array.array()`.
``````import array

#how you would create an array
array.array()
``````
1. Instead of having to type `array.array()` all the time, you could use `import array as arr` at the top of the file, instead of `import array` alone. You would then create an array by typing `arr.array()`. The `arr` acts as an alias name, with the array constructor then immediately following it.
``````import array as arr

#how you would create an array
arr.array()
``````
1. Lastly, you could also use `from array import *`, with `*` importing all the functionalities available. You would then create an array by writing the `array()` constructor alone.
``````from array import *

#how you would create an array
array()
``````

### How to Define Arrays in Python

Once you've imported the `array module`, you can then go on to define a Python array.

The general syntax for creating an array looks like this:

``````variable_name = array(typecode,[elements])
``````

Let's break it down:

• `variable_name` would be the name of the array.
• The `typecode` specifies what kind of elements would be stored in the array. Whether it would be an array of integers, an array of floats or an array of any other Python data type. Remember that all elements should be of the same data type.
• Inside square brackets you mention the `elements` that would be stored in the array, with each element being separated by a comma. You can also create an empty array by just writing `variable_name = array(typecode)` alone, without any elements.

Below is a typecode table, with the different typecodes that can be used with the different data types when defining Python arrays:

Tying everything together, here is an example of how you would define an array in Python:

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [10, 20, 30])
``````

Let's break it down:

• First we included the array module, in this case with `import array as arr `.
• Then, we created a `numbers` array.
• We used `arr.array()` because of `import array as arr `.
• Inside the `array()` constructor, we first included `i`, for signed integer. Signed integer means that the array can include positive and negative values. Unsigned integer, with `H` for example, would mean that no negative values are allowed.
• Lastly, we included the values to be stored in the array in square brackets.

Keep in mind that if you tried to include values that were not of `i` typecode, meaning they were not integer values, you would get an error:

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10.0,20,30])

print(numbers)

#output

#Traceback (most recent call last):
# File "/Users/dionysialemonaki/python_articles/demo.py", line 14, in <module>
#   numbers = arr.array('i',[10.0,20,30])
#TypeError: 'float' object cannot be interpreted as an integer
``````

In the example above, I tried to include a floating point number in the array. I got an error because this is meant to be an integer array only.

Another way to create an array is the following:

``````from array import *

#an array of floating point values
numbers = array('d',[10.0,20.0,30.0])

print(numbers)

#output

#array('d', [10.0, 20.0, 30.0])
``````

The example above imported the `array module` via `from array import *` and created an array `numbers` of float data type. This means that it holds only floating point numbers, which is specified with the `'d'` typecode.

### How to Find the Length of an Array in Python

To find out the exact number of elements contained in an array, use the built-in `len()` method.

It will return the integer number that is equal to the total number of elements in the array you specify.

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

print(len(numbers))

#output
# 3
``````

In the example above, the array contained three elements – `10, 20, 30` – so the length of `numbers` is `3`.

### Array Indexing and How to Access Individual Items in an Array in Python

Each item in an array has a specific address. Individual items are accessed by referencing their index number.

Indexing in Python, and in all programming languages and computing in general, starts at `0`. It is important to remember that counting starts at `0` and not at `1`.

To access an element, you first write the name of the array followed by square brackets. Inside the square brackets you include the item's index number.

The general syntax would look something like this:

``````array_name[index_value_of_item]
``````

Here is how you would access each individual element in an array:

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

print(numbers[0]) # gets the 1st element
print(numbers[1]) # gets the 2nd element
print(numbers[2]) # gets the 3rd element

#output

#10
#20
#30
``````

Remember that the index value of the last element of an array is always one less than the length of the array. Where `n` is the length of the array, `n - 1` will be the index value of the last item.

Note that you can also access each individual element using negative indexing.

With negative indexing, the last element would have an index of `-1`, the second to last element would have an index of `-2`, and so on.

Here is how you would get each item in an array using that method:

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

print(numbers[-1]) #gets last item
print(numbers[-2]) #gets second to last item
print(numbers[-3]) #gets first item

#output

#30
#20
#10
``````

### How to Search Through an Array in Python

You can find out an element's index number by using the `index()` method.

You pass the value of the element being searched as the argument to the method, and the element's index number is returned.

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#search for the index of the value 10
print(numbers.index(10))

#output

#0
``````

If there is more than one element with the same value, the index of the first instance of the value will be returned:

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30,10,20,30])

#search for the index of the value 10
#will return the index number of the first instance of the value 10
print(numbers.index(10))

#output

#0
``````

### How to Loop through an Array in Python

You've seen how to access each individual element in an array and print it out on its own.

You've also seen how to print the array, using the `print()` method. That method gives the following result:

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [10, 20, 30])
``````

What if you want to print each value one by one?

This is where a loop comes in handy. You can loop through the array and print out each value, one-by-one, with each loop iteration.

For this you can use a simple `for` loop:

``````import array as arr

numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

for number in numbers:
print(number)

#output
#10
#20
#30
``````

You could also use the `range()` function, and pass the `len()` method as its parameter. This would give the same result as above:

``````import array as arr

values = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#prints each individual value in the array
for value in range(len(values)):
print(values[value])

#output

#10
#20
#30
``````

### How to Slice an Array in Python

To access a specific range of values inside the array, use the slicing operator, which is a colon `:`.

When using the slicing operator and you only include one value, the counting starts from `0` by default. It gets the first item, and goes up to but not including the index number you specify.

``````
import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#get the values 10 and 20 only
print(numbers[:2])  #first to second position

#output

#array('i', [10, 20])
``````

When you pass two numbers as arguments, you specify a range of numbers. In this case, the counting starts at the position of the first number in the range, and up to but not including the second one:

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#get the values 20 and 30 only
print(numbers[1:3]) #second to third position

#output

#rray('i', [20, 30])
``````

## Methods For Performing Operations on Arrays in Python

Arrays are mutable, which means they are changeable. You can change the value of the different items, add new ones, or remove any you don't want in your program anymore.

Let's see some of the most commonly used methods which are used for performing operations on arrays.

### How to Change the Value of an Item in an Array

You can change the value of a specific element by speficying its position and assigning it a new value:

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#change the first element
#change it from having a value of 10 to having a value of 40
numbers[0] = 40

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [40, 20, 30])
``````

### How to Add a New Value to an Array

To add one single value at the end of an array, use the `append()` method:

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#add the integer 40 to the end of numbers
numbers.append(40)

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [10, 20, 30, 40])
``````

Be aware that the new item you add needs to be the same data type as the rest of the items in the array.

Look what happens when I try to add a float to an array of integers:

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#add the integer 40 to the end of numbers
numbers.append(40.0)

print(numbers)

#output

#Traceback (most recent call last):
#  File "/Users/dionysialemonaki/python_articles/demo.py", line 19, in <module>
#   numbers.append(40.0)
#TypeError: 'float' object cannot be interpreted as an integer
``````

But what if you want to add more than one value to the end an array?

Use the `extend()` method, which takes an iterable (such as a list of items) as an argument. Again, make sure that the new items are all the same data type.

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#add the integers 40,50,60 to the end of numbers
#The numbers need to be enclosed in square brackets

numbers.extend([40,50,60])

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60])
``````

And what if you don't want to add an item to the end of an array? Use the `insert()` method, to add an item at a specific position.

The `insert()` function takes two arguments: the index number of the position the new element will be inserted, and the value of the new element.

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

#add the integer 40 in the first position
#remember indexing starts at 0

numbers.insert(0,40)

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [40, 10, 20, 30])
``````

### How to Remove a Value from an Array

To remove an element from an array, use the `remove()` method and include the value as an argument to the method.

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30])

numbers.remove(10)

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [20, 30])
``````

With `remove()`, only the first instance of the value you pass as an argument will be removed.

See what happens when there are more than one identical values:

``````
import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30,10,20])

numbers.remove(10)

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [20, 30, 10, 20])
``````

Only the first occurence of `10` is removed.

You can also use the `pop()` method, and specify the position of the element to be removed:

``````import array as arr

#original array
numbers = arr.array('i',[10,20,30,10,20])

#remove the first instance of 10
numbers.pop(0)

print(numbers)

#output

#array('i', [20, 30, 10, 20])
``````

## Conclusion

And there you have it - you now know the basics of how to create arrays in Python using the `array module`. Hopefully you found this guide helpful.

You'll start from the basics and learn in an interacitve and beginner-friendly way. You'll also build five projects at the end to put into practice and help reinforce what you learned.

Thanks for reading and happy coding!

## Les Structures De Données Les Plus Couramment Utilisées En Python

Dans tout langage de programmation, nous devons traiter des données. Maintenant, l'une des choses les plus fondamentales dont nous avons besoin pour travailler avec les données est de les stocker, de les gérer et d'y accéder efficacement de manière organisée afin qu'elles puissent être utilisées chaque fois que cela est nécessaire pour nos besoins. Les structures de données sont utilisées pour répondre à tous nos besoins.

## Que sont les Structures de Données ?

Les structures de données sont les blocs de construction fondamentaux d'un langage de programmation. Il vise à fournir une approche systématique pour répondre à toutes les exigences mentionnées précédemment dans l'article. Les structures de données en Python sont List, Tuple, Dictionary et Set . Ils sont considérés comme des structures de données implicites ou intégrées dans Python . Nous pouvons utiliser ces structures de données et leur appliquer de nombreuses méthodes pour gérer, relier, manipuler et utiliser nos données.

Nous avons également des structures de données personnalisées définies par l'utilisateur, à savoir Stack , Queue , Tree , Linked List et Graph . Ils permettent aux utilisateurs d'avoir un contrôle total sur leurs fonctionnalités et de les utiliser à des fins de programmation avancées. Cependant, nous nous concentrerons sur les structures de données intégrées pour cet article.

Structures de données implicites Python

## LISTE

Les listes nous aident à stocker nos données de manière séquentielle avec plusieurs types de données. Ils sont comparables aux tableaux à l'exception qu'ils peuvent stocker différents types de données comme des chaînes et des nombres en même temps. Chaque élément ou élément d'une liste a un index attribué. Étant donné que Python utilise l' indexation basée sur 0 , le premier élément a un index de 0 et le comptage continue. Le dernier élément d'une liste commence par -1 qui peut être utilisé pour accéder aux éléments du dernier au premier. Pour créer une liste, nous devons écrire les éléments à l'intérieur des crochets .

L'une des choses les plus importantes à retenir à propos des listes est qu'elles sont Mutable . Cela signifie simplement que nous pouvons modifier un élément dans une liste en y accédant directement dans le cadre de l'instruction d'affectation à l'aide de l'opérateur d'indexation. Nous pouvons également effectuer des opérations sur notre liste pour obtenir la sortie souhaitée. Passons en revue le code pour mieux comprendre les opérations de liste et de liste.

1. Créer une liste

``````#creating the list
my_list = ['p', 'r', 'o', 'b', 'e']
print(my_list)``````

Production

``['p', 'r', 'o', 'b', 'e']``

2. Accéder aux éléments de la liste

``````#accessing the list

#accessing the first item of the list
my_list[0]``````

Production

``'p'``
``````#accessing the third item of the list
my_list[2]``````
``'o'``

3. Ajouter de nouveaux éléments à la liste

``````#adding item to the list
my_list + ['k']``````

Production

``['p', 'r', 'o', 'b', 'e', 'k']``

4. Suppression d'éléments

``````#removing item from the list
#Method 1:

#Deleting list items
my_list = ['p', 'r', 'o', 'b', 'l', 'e', 'm']

# delete one item
del my_list[2]

print(my_list)

# delete multiple items
del my_list[1:5]

print(my_list)``````

Production

``````['p', 'r', 'b', 'l', 'e', 'm']
['p', 'm']``````
``````#Method 2:

#with remove fucntion
my_list = ['p','r','o','k','l','y','m']
my_list.remove('p')

print(my_list)

#Method 3:

#with pop function
print(my_list.pop(1))

# Output: ['r', 'k', 'l', 'y', 'm']
print(my_list)``````

Production

``````['r', 'o', 'k', 'l', 'y', 'm']
o
['r', 'k', 'l', 'y', 'm']``````

5. Liste de tri

``````#sorting of list in ascending order

my_list.sort()
print(my_list)``````

Production

``['k', 'l', 'm', 'r', 'y']``
``````#sorting of list in descending order

my_list.sort(reverse=True)
print(my_list)``````

Production

``['y', 'r', 'm', 'l', 'k']``

6. Trouver la longueur d'une liste

``````#finding the length of list

len(my_list)``````

Production

``5``

## TUPLE

Les tuples sont très similaires aux listes avec une différence clé qu'un tuple est IMMUTABLE , contrairement à une liste. Une fois que nous avons créé un tuple ou que nous avons un tuple, nous ne sommes pas autorisés à modifier les éléments qu'il contient. Cependant, si nous avons un élément à l'intérieur d'un tuple, qui est une liste elle-même, alors seulement nous pouvons accéder ou changer dans cette liste. Pour créer un tuple, nous devons écrire les éléments entre parenthèses . Comme les listes, nous avons des méthodes similaires qui peuvent être utilisées avec des tuples. Passons en revue quelques extraits de code pour comprendre l'utilisation des tuples.

1. Créer un tuple

``````#creating of tuple

my_tuple = ("apple", "banana", "guava")
print(my_tuple)``````

Production

``('apple', 'banana', 'guava')``

2. Accéder aux éléments d'un Tuple

``````#accessing first element in tuple

my_tuple[1]``````

Production

``'banana'``

3. Longueur d'un tuple

``````#for finding the lenght of tuple

len(my_tuple)``````

Production

``3``

4. Conversion d'un tuple en liste

``````#converting tuple into a list

my_tuple_list = list(my_tuple)
type(my_tuple_list)``````

Production

``list``

5. Inverser un tuple

``````#Reversing a tuple

tuple(sorted(my_tuple, reverse=True)) ``````

Production

``('guava', 'banana', 'apple')``

6. Trier un tuple

``````#sorting tuple in ascending order

tuple(sorted(my_tuple)) ``````

Production

``('apple', 'banana', 'guava')``

7. Supprimer des éléments de Tuple

Pour supprimer des éléments du tuple, nous avons d'abord converti le tuple en une liste comme nous l'avons fait dans l'une de nos méthodes ci-dessus (point n ° 4), puis avons suivi le même processus de la liste et avons explicitement supprimé un tuple entier, juste en utilisant le del déclaration .

## DICTIONNAIRE

Dictionary est une collection, ce qui signifie simplement qu'il est utilisé pour stocker une valeur avec une clé et extraire la valeur donnée à la clé. Nous pouvons le considérer comme un ensemble de clés : des paires de valeurs et chaque clé d'un dictionnaire est supposée être unique afin que nous puissions accéder aux valeurs correspondantes en conséquence.

Un dictionnaire est indiqué par l'utilisation d' accolades { } contenant les paires clé : valeur. Chacune des paires d'un dictionnaire est séparée par des virgules. Les éléments d'un dictionnaire ne sont pas ordonnés , la séquence n'a pas d'importance pendant que nous y accédons ou que nous les stockons.

Ils sont MUTABLES ce qui signifie que nous pouvons ajouter, supprimer ou mettre à jour des éléments dans un dictionnaire. Voici quelques exemples de code pour mieux comprendre un dictionnaire en python.

Un point important à noter est que nous ne pouvons pas utiliser un objet mutable comme clé dans le dictionnaire. Ainsi, une liste n'est pas autorisée comme clé dans le dictionnaire.

1. Création d'un dictionnaire

``````#creating a dictionary

my_dict = {
1:'Delhi',
2:'Patna',
3:'Bangalore'
}
print(my_dict)``````

Production

``{1: 'Delhi', 2: 'Patna', 3: 'Bangalore'}``

Ici, les entiers sont les clés du dictionnaire et le nom de ville associé aux entiers sont les valeurs du dictionnaire.

2. Accéder aux éléments d'un dictionnaire

``````#access an item

print(my_dict[1])``````

Production

``'Delhi'``

3. Longueur d'un dictionnaire

``````#length of the dictionary

len(my_dict)``````

Production

``3``

4. Trier un dictionnaire

``````#sorting based on the key

Print(sorted(my_dict.items()))

#sorting based on the values of dictionary

print(sorted(my_dict.values()))``````

Production

``````[(1, 'Delhi'), (2, 'Bangalore'), (3, 'Patna')]

['Bangalore', 'Delhi', 'Patna']``````

5. Ajout d'éléments dans le dictionnaire

``````#adding a new item in dictionary

my_dict[4] = 'Lucknow'
print(my_dict)``````

Production

``{1: 'Delhi', 2: 'Patna', 3: 'Bangalore', 4: 'Lucknow'}``

6. Suppression d'éléments du dictionnaire

``````#for deleting an item from dict using the specific key

my_dict.pop(4)
print(my_dict)

#for deleting last item from the list

my_dict.popitem()

#for clearing the dictionary

my_dict.clear()
print(my_dict)``````

Production

``````{1: 'Delhi', 2: 'Patna', 3: 'Bangalore'}
(3, 'Bangalore')
{}``````

## POSITIONNER

Set est un autre type de données en python qui est une collection non ordonnée sans éléments en double. Les cas d'utilisation courants d'un ensemble consistent à supprimer les valeurs en double et à effectuer des tests d'appartenance. Les accolades ou la set()fonction peuvent être utilisées pour créer des ensembles. Une chose à garder à l'esprit est que lors de la création d'un ensemble vide, nous devons utiliser set(), et . Ce dernier crée un dictionnaire vide. not { }

Voici quelques exemples de code pour mieux comprendre les ensembles en python.

1. Créer un ensemble

``````#creating set

my_set = {"apple", "mango", "strawberry", "apple"}
print(my_set)``````

Production

``{'apple', 'strawberry', 'mango'}``

2. Accéder aux éléments d'un ensemble

``````#to test for an element inside the set

"apple" in my_set``````

Production

``True``

3. Longueur d'un ensemble

``print(len(my_set))``

Production

``3``

4. Trier un ensemble

``print(sorted(my_set))``

Production

``['apple', 'mango', 'strawberry']``

5. Ajout d'éléments dans Set

``````my_set.add("guava")
print(my_set)``````

Production

``{'apple', 'guava', 'mango', 'strawberry'}``

6. Suppression d'éléments de Set

``````my_set.remove("mango")
print(my_set)``````

Production

``{'apple', 'guava', 'strawberry'}``

## Наиболее часто используемые структуры данных в Python

В любом языке программирования нам нужно иметь дело с данными. Теперь одной из самых фундаментальных вещей, которые нам нужны для работы с данными, является эффективное хранение, управление и доступ к ним организованным образом, чтобы их можно было использовать всякий раз, когда это необходимо для наших целей. Структуры данных используются для удовлетворения всех наших потребностей.

## Что такое структуры данных?

Структуры данных являются фундаментальными строительными блоками языка программирования. Он направлен на обеспечение системного подхода для выполнения всех требований, упомянутых ранее в статье. Структуры данных в Python — это List, Tuple, Dictionary и Set . Они считаются неявными или встроенными структурами данных в Python . Мы можем использовать эти структуры данных и применять к ним многочисленные методы для управления, связывания, манипулирования и использования наших данных.

У нас также есть пользовательские структуры данных, определяемые пользователем, а именно Stack , Queue , Tree , Linked List и Graph . Они позволяют пользователям полностью контролировать их функциональность и использовать их для расширенных целей программирования. Однако в этой статье мы сосредоточимся на встроенных структурах данных.

Неявные структуры данных Python

## СПИСОК

Списки помогают нам хранить наши данные последовательно с несколькими типами данных. Они сопоставимы с массивами за исключением того, что они могут одновременно хранить разные типы данных, такие как строки и числа. Каждый элемент или элемент в списке имеет назначенный индекс. Поскольку Python использует индексацию на основе 0, первый элемент имеет индекс 0, и подсчет продолжается. Последний элемент списка начинается с -1, что можно использовать для доступа к элементам от последнего к первому. Чтобы создать список, мы должны написать элементы внутри квадратных скобок .

Одна из самых важных вещей, которые нужно помнить о списках , это то, что они изменяемы . Это просто означает, что мы можем изменить элемент в списке, обратившись к нему напрямую как часть оператора присваивания с помощью оператора индексации. Мы также можем выполнять операции в нашем списке, чтобы получить желаемый результат. Давайте рассмотрим код, чтобы лучше понять список и операции со списками.

1. Создание списка

``````#creating the list
my_list = ['p', 'r', 'o', 'b', 'e']
print(my_list)``````

Выход

``['p', 'r', 'o', 'b', 'e']``

2. Доступ к элементам из списка

``````#accessing the list

#accessing the first item of the list
my_list[0]``````

Выход

``'p'``
``````#accessing the third item of the list
my_list[2]``````
``'o'``

3. Добавление новых элементов в список

``````#adding item to the list
my_list + ['k']``````

Выход

``['p', 'r', 'o', 'b', 'e', 'k']``

4. Удаление элементов

``````#removing item from the list
#Method 1:

#Deleting list items
my_list = ['p', 'r', 'o', 'b', 'l', 'e', 'm']

# delete one item
del my_list[2]

print(my_list)

# delete multiple items
del my_list[1:5]

print(my_list)``````

Выход

``````['p', 'r', 'b', 'l', 'e', 'm']
['p', 'm']``````
``````#Method 2:

#with remove fucntion
my_list = ['p','r','o','k','l','y','m']
my_list.remove('p')

print(my_list)

#Method 3:

#with pop function
print(my_list.pop(1))

# Output: ['r', 'k', 'l', 'y', 'm']
print(my_list)``````

Выход

``````['r', 'o', 'k', 'l', 'y', 'm']
o
['r', 'k', 'l', 'y', 'm']``````

5. Список сортировки

``````#sorting of list in ascending order

my_list.sort()
print(my_list)``````

Выход

``['k', 'l', 'm', 'r', 'y']``
``````#sorting of list in descending order

my_list.sort(reverse=True)
print(my_list)``````

Выход

``['y', 'r', 'm', 'l', 'k']``

6. Нахождение длины списка

``````#finding the length of list

len(my_list)``````

Выход

``5``

## КОРТЕЖ

Кортежи очень похожи на списки с той ключевой разницей, что кортеж является IMMUTABLE , в отличие от списка. Как только мы создаем кортеж или имеем кортеж, нам не разрешается изменять элементы внутри него. Однако если у нас есть элемент внутри кортежа, который сам является списком, только тогда мы можем получить доступ к этому списку или изменить его. Чтобы создать кортеж, мы должны написать элементы внутри круглых скобок . Как и со списками, у нас есть аналогичные методы, которые можно использовать с кортежами. Давайте рассмотрим некоторые фрагменты кода, чтобы понять, как использовать кортежи.

1. Создание кортежа

``````#creating of tuple

my_tuple = ("apple", "banana", "guava")
print(my_tuple)``````

Выход

``('apple', 'banana', 'guava')``

2. Доступ к элементам из кортежа

``````#accessing first element in tuple

my_tuple[1]``````

Выход

``'banana'``

3. Длина кортежа

``````#for finding the lenght of tuple

len(my_tuple)``````

Выход

``3``

4. Преобразование кортежа в список

``````#converting tuple into a list

my_tuple_list = list(my_tuple)
type(my_tuple_list)``````

Выход

``list``

5. Реверс кортежа

``````#Reversing a tuple

tuple(sorted(my_tuple, reverse=True)) ``````

Выход

``('guava', 'banana', 'apple')``

6. Сортировка кортежа

``````#sorting tuple in ascending order

tuple(sorted(my_tuple)) ``````

Выход

``('apple', 'banana', 'guava')``

7. Удаление элементов из кортежа

Для удаления элементов из кортежа мы сначала преобразовали кортеж в список, как мы сделали в одном из наших методов выше (пункт № 4), затем следовали тому же процессу списка и явно удалили весь кортеж, просто используя del заявление .

## ТОЛКОВЫЙ СЛОВАРЬ

Словарь — это коллекция, которая просто означает, что она используется для хранения значения с некоторым ключом и извлечения значения по данному ключу. Мы можем думать об этом как о наборе пар ключ: значение, и каждый ключ в словаре должен быть уникальным , чтобы мы могли получить соответствующий доступ к соответствующим значениям .

Словарь обозначается фигурными скобками { } , содержащими пары ключ: значение. Каждая из пар в словаре разделена запятой. Элементы в словаре неупорядочены , последовательность не имеет значения, пока мы обращаемся к ним или сохраняем их.

Они ИЗМЕНЯЕМЫ , что означает, что мы можем добавлять, удалять или обновлять элементы в словаре. Вот несколько примеров кода, чтобы лучше понять словарь в Python.

Важно отметить, что мы не можем использовать изменяемый объект в качестве ключа в словаре. Таким образом, список не допускается в качестве ключа в словаре.

1. Создание словаря

``````#creating a dictionary

my_dict = {
1:'Delhi',
2:'Patna',
3:'Bangalore'
}
print(my_dict)``````

Выход

``{1: 'Delhi', 2: 'Patna', 3: 'Bangalore'}``

Здесь целые числа — это ключи словаря, а название города, связанное с целыми числами, — это значения словаря.

2. Доступ к элементам из словаря

``````#access an item

print(my_dict[1])``````

Выход

``'Delhi'``

3. Длина словаря

``````#length of the dictionary

len(my_dict)``````

Выход

``3``

4. Сортировка словаря

``````#sorting based on the key

Print(sorted(my_dict.items()))

#sorting based on the values of dictionary

print(sorted(my_dict.values()))``````

Выход

``````[(1, 'Delhi'), (2, 'Bangalore'), (3, 'Patna')]

['Bangalore', 'Delhi', 'Patna']``````

5. Добавление элементов в Словарь

``````#adding a new item in dictionary

my_dict[4] = 'Lucknow'
print(my_dict)``````

Выход

``{1: 'Delhi', 2: 'Patna', 3: 'Bangalore', 4: 'Lucknow'}``

6. Удаление элементов из словаря

``````#for deleting an item from dict using the specific key

my_dict.pop(4)
print(my_dict)

#for deleting last item from the list

my_dict.popitem()

#for clearing the dictionary

my_dict.clear()
print(my_dict)``````

Выход

``````{1: 'Delhi', 2: 'Patna', 3: 'Bangalore'}
(3, 'Bangalore')
{}``````

## УСТАНОВЛЕН

Set — это еще один тип данных в python, представляющий собой неупорядоченную коллекцию без повторяющихся элементов. Общие варианты использования набора — удаление повторяющихся значений и проверка принадлежности. Фигурные скобки или set()функция могут использоваться для создания наборов. Следует иметь в виду, что при создании пустого набора мы должны использовать set(), и . Последний создает пустой словарь. not { }

Вот несколько примеров кода, чтобы лучше понять наборы в python.

1. Создание набора

``````#creating set

my_set = {"apple", "mango", "strawberry", "apple"}
print(my_set)``````

Выход

``{'apple', 'strawberry', 'mango'}``

2. Доступ к элементам из набора

``````#to test for an element inside the set

"apple" in my_set``````

Выход

``True``

3. Длина набора

``print(len(my_set))``

Выход

``3``

4. Сортировка набора

``print(sorted(my_set))``

Выход

``['apple', 'mango', 'strawberry']``

5. Добавление элементов в Set

``````my_set.add("guava")
print(my_set)``````

Выход

``{'apple', 'guava', 'mango', 'strawberry'}``

6. Удаление элементов из Set

``````my_set.remove("mango")
print(my_set)``````

Выход

``{'apple', 'guava', 'strawberry'}``
