Program to check if input is an integer or a string

Write a function to check whether a given input is an integer or a string.

Definition of an integer : 

Every element should be a valid digit, i.e '0-9'.

Definition of a string : 

Any one element should be an invalid digit, i.e any symbol other than '0-9'.

Examples: 

Input : 127
Output : Integer
Explanation : All digits are in the range '0-9'.

Input : 199.7
Output : String
Explanation : A dot is present. 

Input : 122B
Output : String
Explanation : A alphabet is present.

The idea is to use isdigit() function and is_numeric() function.. 



Below is the implementation of the above idea.

using namespace std;
 
// Returns true if s is a number else false
bool isNumber(string s)
{
    for (int i = 0; i < s.length(); i++)
        if (isdigit(s[i]) == false)
            return false;
 
    return true;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    // Saving the input in a string
    string str = "6790";
 
    // Function returns 1 if all elements
    // are in range '0-9'
    if (isNumber(str))
        cout << "Integer";
 
    // Function returns 0 if the input is
    // not an integer
    else
        cout << "String";

Output

Integer

Using special Python built-in type() function:

type() is a built-in function provided by python . type() takes object as parameter and returns its class type as its name says.
