Slicing memory views in Python: Indexing syntax and example

Python Memory Views Data Type: Exercise-9 with Solution

Write a Python program that takes a slice of a memory view using indexing syntax and prints the slice.

Sample Solution:


def main():
    original_data = bytearray([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10])

    memory_view = memoryview(original_data)

    # Taking a slice of the memory view
    start_index = 3
    end_index = 8
    sliced_memory_view = memory_view[start_index:end_index]

    print("Original Data:", original_data)
    print("Sliced Memory View:")

if __name__ == "__main__":


Original Data: bytearray(b'\x01\x02\x03\x04\x05\x06\x07\x08\t\n')
Sliced Memory View:
[4, 5, 6, 7, 8]

In the exercise above, the "main()" function creates a bytearray and converts it to a memory view. Then, it uses indexing syntax to take a slice of the memory view, from index 3 (inclusive) to index 8 (exclusive). Using the tolist() method, the sliced memory view is converted to a list.
