Python Sets :

Creating Values in Sets :

A set is a collection which is unordered and unindexed. In Python sets are written with curly brackets.

Example :

  1. onset = {"ayan", "dev", "apu", "symul"}
  2. print(onset) #print full set
  3. input()

Output :

python sets creating

Note : You cannot access items in a set by referring to an index, since sets are unordered the items has no index.


Access Values (Items) in Sets :

You cannot access items in a set by referring to an index, since sets are unordered the items has no index. But you can loop through the set items using a for loop, or ask if a specified value is present in a set, by using the in keyword.

Example :

  1. onset = {"ayan", "dev", "apu", "symul"}
  2. for x in onset: print(x) #Loop through the set, and print the values
  3. if "apu" in onset:
  4. print("\n Yes, 'apu' is in the set") #Check if "apu" is present in the tuple
  5. input()

Output :

python set value/items accessing

Sets with methods :

python list have built-in methods, methods help us to manipulate sets items.

Example :

  1. onset = {"ayan", "dev", "apu", "symul"}
  2. onset.add("alex") #Add an item to a set
  3. print(onset)
  4. onset.update(["rayan", "jonas", "tomas"]) #Add multiple items to a set
  5. print(onset)
  6. print(len(onset)) #Get the number of items in a set
  7. onset.remove("alex") #Remove "alex" item using the "remove()" method
  8. print(onset)
  9. onset.remove("rayan") #Remove "rayan" item using the "discard()" method
  10. print(onset)
  11. input()

Output :

python sets with methods

Sets methods :

Python includes many built-in methods but here we just adding some of the following built-in methods to manipulate sets :

  • The add() method to add one item to a set.
  • The update() method to add multiple items to a set.
  • The len() method to determine how many items a set has.
  • The remove() method to remove an item in a set.
  • The discard() method also use for remove an item in a set.
  • The copy() method to returns a copy of the set.
  • The clear() method to removes all the elements from the set.
