Python: Compute the sum of the ASCII values of the upper-case characters in a given string

Python Programming Puzzles: Exercise-22 with Solution

Write a Python program to compute the sum of the ASCII values of the upper-case characters in a given string.

Input:
PytHon ExerciSEs
Output:
373

Input:
JavaScript
Output:
157

Pictorial Presentation:

Python: Compute the sum of the ASCII values of the upper-case characters in a given string.

Sample Solution-1:

Python Code:

#License: https://bit.ly/3oLErEI

def test(strs):
    return sum(map(ord,filter(str.isupper,strs)))
strs =  "PytHon ExerciSEs"
print("Original strings:")
print(strs)
print("Sum of the ASCII values of the upper-case characters in the said string:")
print(test(strs))
strs =  "JavaScript"
print("\nOriginal strings:")
print(strs)
print("Sum of the ASCII values of the upper-case characters in the said string:")
print(test(strs))

Sample Output:

Original strings:
PytHon ExerciSEs
Sum of the ASCII values of the upper-case characters in the said string:
373

Original strings:
JavaScript
Sum of the ASCII values of the upper-case characters in the said string:
157

def test(strs):
    tot = 0
    for c in strs:
        if c.isupper():
            tot += ord(c)
    return tot

Python: Tips of the Day

Clamps num within the inclusive range specified by the boundary values x and y:

Example:

def tips_clamp_num(num,x,y):
  return max(min(num, max(x, y)), min(x, y))
print(tips_clamp_num(2, 4, 6))
print(tips_clamp_num(1, -1, -6))

Output:
