An introduction to text values

To control texts with Python, as a developer, I need to use Strings


A variable can store different types of data, such as text.


a = "hello"
print( a )
print( type(a) )

a is a variable with the value hello

print( a ) will show the hello in the terminal

type (a) shows what type a variable is (a string in this case)

The output will then be:

<class 'str'>

where '<class str>' means 'string' (a string of characters) which is a 'text'


Important: use "hello" and not "Hello", since there is a difference between capital H and a small h!
