Fix Python – Python equivalent for PHP’s implode?


Asked By – pythonian29033

Is there an equivalent for PHP’s implode in Python? I’ve read in and split up a set of delimited words, and now I want to sort them out in random orders and print the words out with spaces in between.

Use the strings join-method.

print(' '.join(['word1', 'word2', 'word3']))

You can join any iterable (not only the list used here) and of course you can use any string (not only ' ') as the delimiter.

If you want a random order like you said in your question use shuffle.

In the comment there was the question why Python throws an error if you do "glue".join(["startString", 123, "endString"]). join operates on an iterable of strings. There is no implicit type conversion in Python.

But of course there is a solution. Just do the conversion yourself.

"glue".join(map(str, ["startString",123,"endString"]))
