How to get length of a string in Python
In this tutorial, we will learn how to get the length of a string in Python.
The length of a string means the total number of characters present in it.
Using len() function
To get the length of a string, we can use the built-in
len() function in Python.
len() function takes the string as an argument and returns the number of characters in it.
Here is an example, that gets the length of a name string:
name = "owlr" length = len(name) print(length)
We can also calculate the length of a string without using the
len() function by taking the help of for loop.
name = "owlr" counter = 0 for element in name: counter+=1 #each iteration increment the counter print (counter) # 4
