Python Exercise: Accept a hyphen-separated sequence of words as input and prints the sorted words

Python Functions: Exercise-15 with Solution

Write a Python program that accepts a hyphen-separated sequence of words as input and prints the words in a hyphen-separated sequence after sorting them alphabetically.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

items=[n for n in input().split('-')]
items.sort()
print('-'.join(items))

Sample Output:

green-red-black-white                                                                                         
black-green-red-white

Python: Tips of the Day

Merges two or more lists into a list of lists, combining elements from each of the input lists based on their positions

Example:

def tips_merge(*args, fill_value=None):
  max_length = max([len(lst) for lst in args])
  result = []
  for i in range(max_length):
    result.append([
      args[k][i] if i < len(args[k])
	  else fill_value for k in range(len(args))
    ])
  return result
print(tips_merge(['x', 'y'], [1, 2], [True, False])) 
print(tips_merge(['x'], [1, 2], [True, False])) 
print(tips_merge(['x'], [1, 2], [True, False], fill_value = '_')) 

Output:

[['x', 1, True], ['y', 2, False]]
[['x', 1, True], [None, 2, False]]
[['x', 1, True], ['_', 2, False]]
