Python Math: Retrieve the current global context for all decimal

Python Math: Exercise-39 with Solution

Write a Python program to retrieve the current global context (public properties) for all decimal.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

import decimal
context = decimal.getcontext()
print('Emax     =', context.Emax)
print('Emin     =', context.Emin)
print('capitals =', context.capitals)
print('prec     =', context.prec)
print('rounding =', context.rounding)
print('flags    =')
for x, y in context.flags.items():
    print('  {}: {}'.format(x, y))
print('traps    =')
for x, y in context.traps.items():
    print('  {}: {}'.format(x, y))

Sample Output:

Emax     = 999999                                                                                             
Emin     = -999999                                                                                            
capitals = 1                                                                                                  
prec     = 28                                                                                                 
rounding = ROUND_HALF_EVEN                                                                                    
flags    =                                                                                                    
  <class 'decimal.InvalidOperation'>: False                                                                   
  <class 'decimal.FloatOperation'>: False   
  -----
 <class 'decimal.Rounded'>: False                                                                            
 <class 'decimal.Clamped'>: False

Python: Tips of the Day

Getting rid of unwanted characters:

You can get rid of whitespaces or any specific character using strip methods in Python. You can use either plain strip for both sides, lstrip for the left side and rstrip for the right side only.

str="+++Welcome python+++"
str.strip()

print(str)

Output:

+++Welcome python+++
