Example text

The character at the stop index is never included. Omitting the second index so that it defaults to the beginning of the string—beginning, not end, because the step is negative—results in a string that does include the first character, assuming the step would select it. Changing the previous example to omit the 0 results in a longer string: >>> 'MNKMDLVADVAEKTDLSKAKATEVIDAVFA'[16::-4] 'SKDDM' Omitting the first index when the step is negative means start from the end of the string: >>> 'MNKMDLVADVAEKTDLSKAKATEVIDAVFA'[:25:-1] 'AFVA' A simple but nonobvious slice expression produces a reversed copy of a string: s[::-1].

A call is a kind of expression. Function calls The simplest kind of call invokes a function. A call to a function consists of a function name, a pair of parentheses, and zero or more argument expressions separated by 12 | Chapter 1: Primitives commas. The function is called, does something, then returns a value. Before the function is called the argument expressions are evaluated, and the resulting values are passed to the function to be used as input to the computation it defines. An argument can be any kind of expression whose result has a type acceptable to the function.

This means you’ll write many relatively small functions that call each other rather than writing large functions with many steps. You can think of the functions you define as building up a vocabulary. In defining a vocabulary, it is natural to define some of its words in terms of others. Python provides a small initial set of words, and you expand on that set by defining more of them. One reason for writing small functions is that simple functions are easier to write and test than complicated ones.
