What are the Built-in functions in Python ?

Built-in Functions In Python - Letter A



Let's see few important built-in functions in Python.
Starting alphabetically we will go through the functions beginning with character "a":
  • abs(x)
         abs(x) returns the absolute value of a number. Arguments it takes can be anything like an                    integer or a floating point number. all(iterable)
  • all(iterable)
          all(iterable) returns  True if all elements of the iterable are true .
                             
                                        def all(iterable):
                                                    for element in iterable:
                                                         if not element:
                                                               return False
                                                   return True
  • any(iterable)
         any(iterable) will return True if any element of the iterable is true. But if the iterable is empty, it          will return False. 
                                        def any(iterable):
                                                   for element in iterable:
                                                      if element:
                                                           return True
                                            return False
  • ascii(object)
         We  know that repr(), returns a string containing a printable representation of an object, but                   escape the non-ASCII characters in the string returned by repr()using \x, \u or \U escapes. It                 generates a string similar to that returned by repr().

In the next post we will see Built - in functions starting from letter "B" .
