How to get the Length of String in Python?
We can use len() function in order Length of string in Python.
Parameter of len() - A list is a defined set in Python.
Syntax of len() - To get the value of the number of elements in a list or length of string python, you must use the syntax len().
Return value of len() - The output prints the length of string as well as number of elements present in the list.
An example of the same would be-
len() function with string.
stringlenth = 'Hello World' print "String Length: ",len(stringlenth)
len() function with list
#!/usr/bin/python listB, listD = [9977, 'xyz', 'sahara', 'stechies'], [459, 'pqr', 234] print "Length of list B: ", len(listB) print " Length of list D: ", len(listD)
Length of list B: 4
Length of list D: 3
Calculate to length of string in Python without using len() function
However, if you are interested to find the length of a string without using len() function, you can follow this example instead.
def string_length(s): if s == '': return 0 return 1 + string_length(s[1:]) len = string_length("Enter String :") print("The length is :", len)
('The length is :', 14)
