Python: Frozensets

Python sets: Exercise-13 with Solution

Write a Python program to use of frozensets.

Note: Frozensets behave just like sets except they are immutable.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

x = frozenset([1, 2, 3, 4, 5])
y = frozenset([3, 4, 5, 6, 7])
#use isdisjoint(). Return True if the set has no elements in common with other. 
#use difference(). Return a new set with elements in the set that are not in the others.
#new set with elements from both x and y
print(x | y)

Sample Output:

frozenset({1, 2})                                                                                             
frozenset({1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7})  

Note:- Frozensets can be created using the function frozenset(). This datatype supports methods like copy(), difference(), intersection(), isdisjoint(), issubset(), issuperset(), symmetric_difference() and union(). Being immutable it does not have method that add or remove elements.
