Strings are iterables of 8-bit characters in Python 2.x and Unicode characters in Python 3.x. Strings can be declared in multiple ways, some of which are shown in the following code snippet:
#string declarationsmystring = 'Practical Time Series'print(mystring)mystring = "Practical Time Series"print(mystring)mystring = """Practical Time Series"""print(mystring)mystring = '''Practical Time Series'''print(mystring)
All four of the preceding declarations result in the same string and the print function in each case gives the same output:
Practical Time Series
Strings are objects of type class, str, and support several functions that make string handling easy. We have shown a few examples in the Jupyter Notebook, code/Getting_started.ipynb ...
