For strings in python, boolean operators (and , or, not) work. Let us consider the two strings namely str1 and str2 and try boolean operators on them:
'' '' 'geeks' 'geeks' 'geeks' 'for' 'for' 'geeks' False True
The output of the boolean operations between the strings depends on following things:
- Python considers empty strings as having boolean value of ‘false’ and non-empty string as having boolean value of ‘true’.
- For ‘and’ operator if left value is true, then right value is checked and returned. If left value is false, then it is returned
- For ‘or’ operator if left value is true, then it is returned, otherwise if left value is false, then right value is returned.
Note that the bitwise operators (| , &) don’t work for strings.
