Python Data Structures and Algorithms - Recursion: Convert an integer to a string in any base

Python Recursion: Exercise-2 with Solution

Write a Python program to converting an integer to a string in any base.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

def to_string(n,base):
   conver_tString = "0123456789ABCDEF"
   if n < base:
      return conver_tString[n]
   else:
      return to_string(n//base,base) + conver_tString[n % base]

print(to_string(2835,16))

Sample Output:

B13

Python: Tips of the Day

Decapitalizes the first letter of a string:

Example:

def tips_decapitalize(s, upper_rest=False):
  return s[:1].lower() + (s[1:].upper() if upper_rest else s[1:])
print(tips_decapitalize('PythonTips'))
print(tips_decapitalize('PythonTips', True)) 

Output:

pythonTips
pYTHONTIPS
