Enumerate() in Python
Enumerate in Python :
Sometimes we need to keep count of iterators or the index position of an sequence so that we can use the index of the sequence later in the code as per need.
Python provides an in-built function to do this operation – Enumerate().
Enumerate() function adds a counter to an iterable and returns it in a form of enumerate object. This can be directly used or can be converted into a list of tuples.
iterable - any object that is iterable
start(optional) - from index value to start, default value is 0
Return Value from enumerate()
enumerate() function adds counter to an iterable and returns it. The returned object is a enumerate object.
You can convert enumerate objects to list of tuple using list().
Code #1 :
<enumerate object at 0x2b4f5a14e090>
[(0, 'P'), (1, 'r'), (2, 'e'), (3, 'p'), (4, 'I'), (5, 'n'), (6, 's'), (7, 't'), (8, 'a')]
The above code will print the type of object enumerate returns and the second print statement will print the list of tuple of the object and we can see that start parameter is optional.
Every char of srting ‘b’ is enumerated with their index value.
[[(2, 'P'), (3, 'r'), (4, 'e'), (5, 'p'), (6, 'I'), (7, 'n'), (8, 's'), (9, 't'), (10, 'a')]
In the above program start(parameter) value is 2 so counter starts from 2 instead of 0. we can print the tuple value seprately also.
