Python: Rotate a Deque Object specified number (negative) of times

Python Collections: Exercise-14 with Solution

Write a Python program to rotate a Deque Object specified number (negative) of times.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

import collections
# declare an empty deque object
dq_object = collections.deque()
# Add elements to the deque - left to right
dq_object.append(2)
dq_object.append(4)
dq_object.append(6)
dq_object.append(8)
dq_object.append(10)
print("Deque before rotation:")
print(dq_object)
# Rotate once in negative direction
dq_object.rotate(-1)
print("\nDeque after 1 negative rotation:")
print(dq_object)
# Rotate twice in negative direction
dq_object.rotate(-2)
print("\nDeque after 2 negative rotations:")
print(dq_object)

Sample Output:

Deque before rotation:
deque([2, 4, 6, 8, 10])

Deque after 1 negative rotation:
deque([4, 6, 8, 10, 2])

Deque after 2 negative rotations:
deque([8, 10, 2, 4, 6])

Python: Tips of the Day

Use Reversed() In for Loops:

>>> tasks = ['laundry', 'picking up kids', 'gardening', 'cooking']
>>> for task in reversed(tasks):
...     print(task)
... 
cooking
gardening
picking up kids
laundry
