Nudge Notes - Python Language Basics

Python Basics

 

1. Datatypes in Python:

  • None
  • Numeric
    • float -> 1.5
    • int -> 5
    • complex -> 2+5j
    • bool -> True/false
  • Sequence
    • List -> [3,5,6,7,1]
    • Tuple -> (3,5,6,7,1)
    • Set -> {3,5,6,7,1}
    • String -> "Akshay"
    • Range 
      • range(5) -> range(0, 5) 
      • list(range(5)) -> [0,1,2,3,4]
      • list(range(2,10,2)) -> [2,4,6,8]
  • Dictonary
    • product_price = {'book': 50, 'pen': 300, 'eraser': 10} 
    • product_price.get('book') -> 50
2. Number Conversion in Python
  • bin(28) -> 0b11100
  • oct(28) -> 0o34 
  • hex(28) ->  0x1c
3. Swap two numbers in Python
         a = 5
     b = 6
  • Method #1:
            a, b = b, a
  • Method #2
         a = a + b
      b = a - b
      a = a - b
4. "math" module in python

    import math
  • math.sqrt(25) -> 5.0
  • math.floor(2.5) -> 2.0
  • math.ceil(2.5) -> 3.0
  • math.pow(2, 3) -> 8.0
  • math.pi -> 3.141592653589793
  • math.e -> 2.718281828459045
5. How to import a module in python
  • import math
  • import math as m
  • from math import sqrt, pow
6. How to take input from command line in python

from sys import argv

x = int(argv[1]) 
y = int(argv[2])
z = x + y
print(z)


7. Print below pattern in Python
A P Q R A B Q R A B C R A B C D


str1 = "ABCD"
str2 = "PQR"
for i in range(4):
    print(str1[:i+1]+str2[i:])

8. Use else with for loop in python
  • for loop must have 'break' statement in it to use the 'else'. 
  • example: find the number in the list that is divisible by 2
                   digits = [7, 3, 5, 11]
        for digit in digits:
           if digit%2==0:
              print(digit)
              break;
        else:
           print('not found!')

9. Array in python
  • Array is similar to list but must have elements of same datatype.
Python array typecode table


       from array import *
   # 'i' denotes the type of array i.e. integer
   digits = array('i', [1,2,4,5,7]) 

       # u denotes the unicode type array
   unico = array('u', ["a","k","s","h","a","y"])  

   #copying array
   digitcp = array(digits.typecode, [ a for a in digits]) 
   
   #print array with for loop
   for d in unico:
      print(d)

Blockchain in Theory - Blockchain, Bitcoin, Mining

   Blockchain is the software protocol that tell the Internet how to transfer money and assets. Blockchain is the layer and Bitcoin is the application. Just one of many cryptocurrency kinds of applications. When one user send email to another then both users do not have to know about the underlaying process except email address. Similarly,  User don't need to know anything other than other user's wallet address to send some bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies.  Any file on Internet may have multiple copies but money is something that should not be copied multiple times. This has been a longstanding problem in computing networks namely the double spend problem. Satoshi Nakamoto introduced white paper for digital cash system in 2008 to resolve the double spending problem and fortified by a ledger which enforces the money is only spent once. It took 15 years alone for corporate email as the main application to be a standard thing in our lives. And similarly the money Internet block

How to kill a process running on particular port in Linux

  If port 8080 needs to be kill use below single command: kill -9 $(lsof -t -i:8080) Note: remove -9 from the command, if you don't want to kill the process violently. To list any process listening to the port 8080: lsof -i:8080 Use any port number that you want to kill.
