What is an efficient way to repeat a string to a certain length? Eg:
repeat('abc', 7) -> 'abcabca'
Here is my current code:
def repeat(string, length): cur, old = 1, string while len(string) < length: string += old[cur-1] cur = (cur+1)%len(old) return string
Is there a better (more pythonic) way to do this? Maybe using list comprehension?
Now we will see solution for issue: Repeat string to certain length
def repeat_to_length(string_to_expand, length): return (string_to_expand * ((length/len(string_to_expand))+1))[:length]
def repeat_to_length(string_to_expand, length): return (string_to_expand * (int(length/len(string_to_expand))+1))[:length]
