NumPy: Test comparison operators

NumPy String: Exercise-14 with Solution

Write a NumPy program to test equal, not equal, greater equal, greater and less test of all the elements of two given arrays.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

import numpy as np
x1 = np.array(['Hello', 'PHP', 'JS', 'examples', 'html'], dtype=np.str)
x2 = np.array(['Hello', 'php', 'Java', 'examples', 'html'], dtype=np.str)
print("\nArray1:")
print(x1)
print("Array2:")
print(x2)
print("\nEqual test:")
r = np.char.equal(x1, x2)
print(r)
print("\nNot equal test:")
r = np.char.not_equal(x1, x2)
print(r)
print("\nLess equal test:")
r = np.char.less_equal(x1, x2)
print(r)
print("\nGreater equal test:")
r = np.char.greater_equal(x1, x2)
print(r)
print("\nLess test:")
r = np.char.less(x1, x2)
print(r)

Sample Input:

['Hello' 'PHP' 'JS' 'examples' 'html']

['Hello' 'php' 'Java' 'examples' 'html']

Sample Output:

Array1:
['Hello' 'PHP' 'JS' 'examples' 'html']
Array2:
['Hello' 'php' 'Java' 'examples' 'html']

Equal test:
[ True False False  True  True]

Not equal test:
[False  True  True False False]

Less equal test:
[ True  True  True  True  True]

Greater equal test:
[ True False False  True  True]

Less test:
[False  True  True False False]

Python: Tips of the Day

Getting the last element of a list:

some_list[-1] is the shortest and most Pythonic.

In fact, you can do much more with this syntax. The some_list[-n] syntax gets the nth-to-last element. So some_list[-1] gets the last element, some_list[-2] gets the second to last, etc, all the way down to some_list[-len(some_list)], which gives you the first element.

You can also set list elements in this way. For instance:

>>> some_list = [1, 2, 3]
>>> some_list[-1] = 5 # Set the last element
>>> some_list[-2] = 3 # Set the second to last element
>>> some_list
[1, 3, 5]

Note that getting a list item by index will raise an IndexError if the expected item doesn't exist. This means that some_list[-1] will raise an exception if some_list is empty, because an empty list can't have a last element.
