Python: Remove duplicate words from a given string

Python String: Exercise-90 with Solution

Write a Python program to remove duplicate words from a given string.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

def unique_list(text_str):
    l = text_str.split()
    temp = []
    for x in l:
        if x not in temp:
            temp.append(x)
    return ' '.join(temp)

text_str = "Python Exercises Practice Solution Exercises"
print("Original String:")
print(text_str)
print("\nAfter removing duplicate words from the said string:")
print(unique_list(text_str))

Sample Output:

Original String:

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.
