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
# display the sorted words
print("The sorted words are:")
for word in words:
The sorted words are:
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.
