in operator lets us check if a character is in a string. However, can the
in operator be used to get the specific index of duplicate characters?
in operator will usually return True at the first instance that a character appears within a string. It also does not have any way of returning the index where a character was found.
In order to get the indexes of a character that appears within a string, any number of times, one method might be to utilize a for loop iterating through each index, and checking each character for a match.
# We first check that a string contains the character. # If so, we store the indexes in a list. string = "xylophone" target = "o" is_contained = target in string indexes =  if is_contained: for index in range(len(string)): if string[index] == target: indexes.append(index) print(indexes) # [3, 6]
