Decimal#is_signed() : is_signed() is a Decimal class method which checks whether the sign of Decimal value is negative

Syntax: Decimal.is_signed()

Parameter: Decimal values

Return: true – if the sign of Decimal value is negative; otherwise false

Code #1 : Example for is_signed() method






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

Output :

Decimal value a :  -1
Decimal value b :  -Infinity


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

Code #2 : Example for is_signed() method




# Python Program explaining 
# is_signed() 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_signed() method
print ("\n\nDecimal a with is_signed() method : ", a.is_signed())
  
print ("Decimal b with is_signed() method : ", b.is_signed())

Output :

Decimal value a :  -3.14
Decimal value b :  3.21E+7


Decimal a with is_signed() method :  True
Decimal b with is_signed() method :  False
