To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of following Python programming topics:
In this example, we illustrate how words can be sorted lexicographically (alphabetic order).
# Program to sort alphabetically the words form a string provided by the user # change this value for a different result my_str = "Hello this Is an Example With cased letters" # uncomment to take input from the user #my_str = input("Enter a string: ") # breakdown the string into a list of words words = my_str.split() # sort the list words.sort() # display the sorted words print("The sorted words are:") for word in words: print(word)
The sorted words are: Example Hello Is With an cased letters this
Note: To test the program, change the value of my_str.
In this program, we store the string to be sorted in my_str. Using the split() method the string is converted into a list of words. The split() method splits the string at whitespaces.
The list of words is then sorted using the sort() method and all the words are displayed.
