In this tutorial, we will learn about python string join method.
Python String Join

join method :

This method returns a string, which is a concatenation of all the strings in a iterable ( List, Tuple etc ) object. The separator between the elements of the iterable is a string object on which join method is called. An Exception ( Type Error ) will be raised, if iterable contains any non-string element.

Syntax : < String Object >.join(< Iterable Object >) :  < String Object >

[datacamp_sample_code]
# create list object and assign it to variable l
l = [‘a’,’b’,’c’,’d’]

# create single space string and assign it to variable separator
separator = ‘ ‘

# call join() method on separator by passing list l as an argument
output = separator.join(l)

# print the value of variable output
print(output)

# second example with ‘-‘ as a separator
separator = ‘-‘

output = separator.join(l)

print(output)

# create tuple object and assign it to variable t
t = (‘Jan’,’Feb’,’Mar’,’Jan’)

# create single space string and assign it to variable separator
separator = ‘ ‘

# call join() method on separator by passing tuple t as an argument
output = separator.join(t)

# print the value of variable output
print(output)

# second example with ‘-‘ as a separator
separator = ‘-‘

output = separator.join(t)

print(output)
