Python: Sum the length of the names of a given list of names after removing the names that starts with an lowercase letter

Python Lambda: Exercise-22 with Solution

Write a Python program that sum the length of the names of a given list of names after removing the names that starts with an lowercase letter. Use lambda function.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

sample_names = ['sally', 'Dylan', 'rebecca', 'Diana', 'Joanne', 'keith']
sample_names=list(filter(lambda el:el[0].isupper() and el[1:].islower(),sample_names))
print("Result:")
print(len(''.join(sample_names)))

Sample Output:

Result:
16

Python: Cache results with decorators

There is a great way to cache functions with decorators in Python. Caching will help save time and precious resources when there is an expensive function at hand.

Implementation is easy, just import lru_cache from functools library and decorate your function using @lru_cache.

from functools import lru_cache

@lru_cache(maxsize=None)
def fibo(a):
    if a <= 1:
        return a
    else:
        return fibo(a-1) + fibo(a-2)

for i in range(20):
    print(fibo(i), end="|")

print("\n\n", fibo.cache_info())

Output:

0|1|1|2|3|5|8|13|21|34|55|89|144|233|377|610|987|1597|2584|4181|

 CacheInfo(hits=36, misses=20, maxsize=None, currsize=20)
