Introduction

Some basic examples of creating strings in Python.

# create a string with single quotes or double quotes
s1 = 'hello'
s2 = "hello there"

# use \ to escape a single quote or use double quotes
s3 = 'that ain\'t the one'
s4 = "that ain't the one"

# triple quotes can also be used
s5 = """another string"""

String methods

Methods available for the string type are demonstrated below.

>>> s = 'i love apples'

# return a copy of the string where the first letter is capitalized
>>> s.capitalize()
'I love apples'

# return a copy of the string where words start with an uppercase
>>> s.title()
'I Love Apples'
