How do I use isalpha( )?
isalpha() is a method that can be used on any string - whether it be a variable holding a string, or a string by itself, or a string returned from another method. We use it in this PygLatin translator to check if the user of our program inputs anything other than alphabetical characters,
To make use of it, we simply attach it to the end of a string we want to check for that condition - being solely alphabetical. Like this:
my_string = “Not 4lphabet1cal” if my_string.isalpha(): print “isalpha() returned True; the string was entirely alphabetical!” else: print “something in that string was NOT alphabetical!”
