Pandas: Create a monthly time period and list of names in the current local scope

Pandas Time Series: Exercise-31 with Solution

Write a Pandas program to create a monthly time period and display the list of names in the current local scope.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

import pandas as pd
mtp = pd.Period('2021-11','M')
print("Monthly time perid: ",mtp)
print("\nList of names in the current local scope:")
print(dir(mtp)) 

Sample Output:

Monthly time perid:  2021-11

List of names in the current local scope:
['__add__', '__class__', '__delattr__', '__dict__', '__dir__', '__doc__', '__eq__', '__format__', '__ge__', '__getattribute__', '__gt__', '__hash__', '__init__', '__init_subclass__', '__le__', '__lt__', '__module__', '__ne__', '__new__', '__radd__', '__reduce__', '__reduce_ex__', '__repr__', '__rsub__', '__setattr__', '__setstate__', '__sizeof__', '__str__', '__sub__', '__subclasshook__', '__unicode__', '__weakref__', '_add_delta', '_from_ordinal', '_maybe_convert_freq', '_typ', 'asfreq', 'day', 'dayofweek', 'dayofyear', 'days_in_month', 'daysinmonth', 'end_time', 'freq', 'freqstr', 'hour', 'is_leap_year', 'minute', 'month', 'now', 'ordinal', 'quarter', 'qyear', 'second', 'start_time', 'strftime', 'to_timestamp', 'week', 'weekday', 'weekofyear', 'year']

# in Python 3.5+

x = {'p': 1, 'q': 3}
y = {'q': 5, 'r': 8}

z = {**x, **y}

z
{'r': 4, 'p': 1, 'q': 3}
