Python: Find a string which, when each character is shifted (ASCII incremented) by shift

Python Programming Puzzles: Exercise-67 with Solution

Write a Python program to find a string which, when each character is shifted (ASCII incremented) by shift, gives the result.

ASCII table -

Input:
Ascii character table
Shift = 1
Output:
@rbhhbg`q`bsdqs`akd

Input:
Ascii character table
Shift = -1
Output:
Btdjj!dibsbdufs!ubcmf

Sample Solution-1:

Python Code:

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

def test(strs,shift):
    return "".join(chr(ord(c) - shift) for c in strs)
 
strs = "Ascii character table"
print("Original string:")
print(strs)
shift = 1
print('Shift =',shift)
print("A new string which, when each character is shifted (ASCII incremented) by shift in the said string:")
print(test(strs, shift))
strs = "Ascii character table"
print("\nOriginal string:")
print(strs)
shift = -1
print('Shift =',shift)
print("A new string which, when each character is shifted (ASCII incremented) by shift in the said string:")
print(test(strs, shift))

Sample Output:

Original string:
Ascii character table
Shift = 1
A new string which, when each character is shifted (ASCII incremented) by shift in the said string:
@rbhhbg`q`bsdqs`akd

Original string:
Ascii character table
Shift = -1
A new string which, when each character is shifted (ASCII incremented) by shift in the said string:
Btdjj!dibsbdufs!ubcmf

def test(strs,shift):
    return "".join(chr(ord(strs[i]) - shift) for i in range(len(strs)))
 
strs = "Ascii character table"
print("Original string:")
print(strs)
shift = 1
print('Shift =',shift)
print("A new string which, when each character is shifted (ASCII incremented) by shift in the said string:")
print(test(strs, shift))
strs = "Ascii character table"
print("\nOriginal string:")
print(strs)
shift = -1
print('Shift =',shift)
print("A new string which, when each character is shifted (ASCII incremented) by shift in the said string:")
print(test(strs, shift))

Sample Output:

Original string:
Ascii character table
Shift = 1
A new string which, when each character is shifted (ASCII incremented) by shift in the said string:
@rbhhbg`q`bsdqs`akd

Original string:
Ascii character table
Shift = -1
A new string which, when each character is shifted (ASCII incremented) by shift in the said string:
Btdjj!dibsbdufs!ubcmf

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:

4
-1
