Code #1 : Example for is_canonical() method




# Python Program explaining 
# is_canonical() method
  
# loading decimal library
from decimal import *
  
  
# Initializing a decimal value
a = Decimal(-1)
  
b = Decimal('0.142857')
  
# printing Decimal values
print ("Decimal value a : ", a)
print ("Decimal value b : ", b)
  
  
# Using Decimal.is_canonical() method
print ("\n\nDecimal a with is_canonical() method : ", a.is_canonical())
  
print ("Decimal b with is_canonical() method : ", b.is_canonical())

Output :

Decimal value a :  -1
Decimal value b :  0.142857


Decimal a with is_canonical() method :  True
Decimal b with is_canonical() method :  True

Code #2 : Example for is_canonical() method




# Python Program explaining 
# is_canonical() method
  
# loading decimal library
from decimal import *
  
  
# Initializing a decimal value
a = Decimal('-3.14')
  
b = Decimal('321e + 5')
  
# printing Decimal values
print ("Decimal value a : ", a)
print ("Decimal value b : ", b)
  
  
# Using Decimal.is_canonical() method
print ("\n\nDecimal a with is_canonical() method : ", a.is_canonical())
  
print ("Decimal b with is_canonical() method : ", b.is_canonical())

Output :
