Python: Replace a string "Python" with "Java" and "Java" with "Python" in a given string

Python Basic - 1: Exercise-50 with Solution

Write a Python program to replace a string "Python" with "Java" and "Java" with "Python" in a given string.

English letters (including single byte alphanumeric characters, blanks, symbols) are given on one line. The length of the input character string is 1000 or less.
Input a text with two words 'Python' and 'Java'

Exchanged character string of Python and Java on one line.

Python: Replace a string 'Python' with 'Java' and 'Java' with 'Python' in a given string

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

print("Input a text with two words 'Python' and 'Java'")
text = input().split()
for i in range(len(text)):
    if "Python" in text[i]:n = text[i].index("Python");text[i] = text[i][:n] + "Java" + text[i][n + 6:]
    elif "Java" in text[i]:n = text[i].index("Java");text[i] = text[i][:n] + "Python" + text[i][n + 4:]

Sample Output:

Input a text with two words 'Python' and 'Java'
 Python is popular than Java
Java is popular than Python

Python: Tips of the Day

Iterating over dictionaries using 'for' loops:

I am a bit puzzled by the following code: d = {'x': 1, 'y': 2, 'z': 3} for key in d: print key, 'corresponds to', d[key] What I don't understand is the key portion. How does Python recognize ...

key is just a variable name.

for key in d:

For Python 3.x:

for key, value in d.items():

For Python 2.x:

for key, value in d.iteritems():

To test for yourself, change the word key to poop.

In Python 3.x, iteritems() was replaced with simply items(), which returns a set-like view backed by the dict, like iteritems() but even better. This is also available in 2.7 as viewitems().

The operation items() will work for both 2 and 3, but in 2 it will return a list of the dictionary's (key, value) pairs, which will not reflect changes to the dict that happen after the items() call. If you want the 2.x behavior in 3.x, you can call list(d.items()).
