Python any() Function in Linux

Python any() Function in Linux

Introduction

The any() is a built-in function in Python. It will return True if any element of the iterable is true. What’s important to note also is that if there is an empty iterable, it will return False.

This is different than the all built-in function where if there is an empty iterable, it will return True.

The following article is a detailed guide on how to use the any() function in Python as we go through the section below.

Example

list = []

x = any(list)

print(x)

Output:

False

list = [1, 3, 4]

x = any(list)

print(x)

Output:

True

Definition

If the value of iterable is true, the function returns True, otherwise, it returns False.

It will return False If the iterable is empty,

The syntax

any(iterable)

Parameter Values:

iterable: list, tuple, dictionary

More examples

Example 1: The any() function with list

x = [1, 3, 5]

print(any(x))

# 0 and False are two false values

y = [0, False]

print(any(y))

z = [0, False, 5]

print(any(z))

k = []

print(any(k))

Output:

True

False

True

False

Example 2: The any() function with string

s = ""

print(any(s))

s= "abcd"

print(any(s))

Output:

False

True

Example 3: The any() function with a dictionary

dict = {0 : "cat", 1 : "dog"}

l = any(dict)

print(l)

# the any() function checks the keys, not the values with dictionaries.

Output:

True
