Python: Remove existing indentation from all of the lines in a given text

Python String: Exercise-27 with Solution

Write a Python program to remove existing indentation from all of the lines in a given text.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

import textwrap
sample_text = '''
    Python is a widely used high-level, general-purpose, interpreted,
    dynamic programming language. Its design philosophy emphasizes
    code readability, and its syntax allows programmers to express
    concepts in fewer lines of code than possible in languages such
    as C++ or Java.
    '''
text_without_Indentation = textwrap.dedent(sample_text)
print()
print(text_without_Indentation )
print()

Sample Output:

Python is a widely used high-level, general-purpose, interpreted,

Python: Tips of the Day

Check if a given key already exists in a dictionary:

In is the intended way to test for the existence of a key in a dict.

d = {"key1": 10, "key2": 23}

if "key1" in d:
    print("this will execute")

if "nonexistent key" in d:
    print("this will not")

If you wanted a default, you can always use dict.get():

d = dict()

for i in range(100):
    key = i % 10
    d[key] = d.get(key, 0) + 1

and if you wanted to always ensure a default value for any key you can either use dict.setdefault() repeatedly or defaultdict from the collections module, like so:

from collections import defaultdict

d = defaultdict(int)

for i in range(100):
    d[i % 10] += 1

but in general, the in keyword is the best way to do it.
