Python – Consecutive element deletion strings
  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

Sometimes, while working with Python, we can have a problem in which we have a string and wish to extract all possible combination of words after deletion of consecutive elements one at a time. This can have application in many domains. Lets discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Method #1 : Using list comprehension + list slicing
This is one of the way in which this task can be performed. In this, we iterate for the elements of list and keep on creating new string using consecutive list slicing.




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of 
# Consecutive element deletion strings
# Using list comprehension + list slicing
  
# initializing string
test_str = 'Geeks4Geeks'
  
# printing original string
print("The original string is : " + str(test_str))
  
# Consecutive element deletion strings
# Using list comprehension + list slicing
res =  [test_str[: idx] + test_str[idx + 1:] 
             for idx in range(len(test_str))]
  
# printing result 
print("Consecutive Elements removal list : " + str(res)) 
Output :

The original string is : Geeks4Geeks
Consecutive Elements removal list : [‘eeks4Geeks’, ‘Geks4Geeks’, ‘Geks4Geeks’, ‘Gees4Geeks’, ‘Geek4Geeks’, ‘GeeksGeeks’, ‘Geeks4eeks’, ‘Geeks4Geks’, ‘Geeks4Geks’, ‘Geeks4Gees’, ‘Geeks4Geek’]

 



Method #2 : Using list comprehension + enumerate()
The combination of above methods can be used to perform this task. In this, we extract the index using enumerate. This gives more cleaner code.




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of 
# Consecutive element deletion strings
# Using list comprehension + enumerate()
  
# initializing string
test_str = 'Geeks4Geeks'
  
# printing original string
print("The original string is : " + str(test_str))
  
# Consecutive element deletion strings
# Using list comprehension + enumerate()
res = [test_str[:idx] + test_str[idx + 1:] 
          for idx, _ in enumerate(test_str)]
  
# printing result 
print("Consecutive Elements removal list : " + str(res)) 
Output :

The original string is : Geeks4Geeks
Consecutive Elements removal list : [‘eeks4Geeks’, ‘Geks4Geeks’, ‘Geks4Geeks’, ‘Gees4Geeks’, ‘Geek4Geeks’, ‘GeeksGeeks’, ‘Geeks4eeks’, ‘Geeks4Geks’, ‘Geeks4Geks’, ‘Geeks4Gees’, ‘Geeks4Geek’]
