Intro to Python Scripting: 11 Strings and Lists
We take a quick step back in this tutorial to cover a couple of basic string and list methods. These methods are extremely handy when we start building things up in our Python scripts, in fact, we use a couple of them immediately in the next tutorial. You can find out a bit more about strings here and lists here. These are pretty good resources for basic operations. I can't cover everything so make sure you take a look at as many tutorials as you can. Keep in mind though, that Python for Rhinoscript isIronPython NOT Python. There is a difference. Most tutorials out there are for Python 2.x or Python3.x, not IronPython. Most functions will still work, you might find subtle differences. Sometimes the best way to learn is to try and fail. I do it all the time. It's no big deal and it's a great way to learn.
#Strings and Lists string01 = 'Hello World!' string02 = "Python Script is Awesome" #Accessiong Values in Strings print "string01: ", string01 print "string02[7:13]: ", string02[7:13] print "string02 length = ", len(string02) print "string02[-7:]: = ", string02[-7:] #Replace Values string03 = string02.replace("i","1") print string03 #Lists list01 = ['pt1', 'pt2', 'pt3', 'pt4'] print list01 print list01[1:3] print list01[-1] #add to list list01.append('pt5') print list01 #remove from list del list01 print list01 #list length print len(list01) #iterate a list for x in list01: print x #membership test print 'pt2' in list01 print 'pt3' in list01
