Python – Get the indices of Uppercase characters in given string
  • Last Updated : 02 Sep, 2020

Given a String extract indices of uppercase characters.

Input : test_str = ‘GeeKsFoRGeeks’
Output : [0, 3, 5, 7, 8]
Explanation : Returns indices of uppercase characters.

Input : test_str = ‘GFG’
Output : [0, 1, 2]
Explanation : All are uppercase.

Method #1 : Using list comprehension  + range() + isupper()

In this we iterate through the indices till string length, and check for uppercase character using isupper(), if found, index is recorded.



Python3




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of 
# Uppercase Indices
# Using list comprehension + range() + isupper()
  
# initializing string
test_str = 'GeeKsFoRGEEks'
  
# printing original string
print("The original string is : " + str(test_str))
  
# Uppercase check using isupper()
res = [idx for idx in range(len(test_str)) if test_str[idx].isupper()]
  
# printing result 
print("Uppercase elements indices : " + str(res)) 
Output
The original string is : GeeKsFoRGEEks
Uppercase elements indices : [0, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10]

Method #2 : Using enumerate() + isupper()

In this, the indices are captured using enumerate(), and isupper() does task of uppercase check as in above method.

# Uppercase Indices
# Using enumerate() + isupper()
  
# initializing string
test_str = 'GeeKsFoRGEEks'
  
# printing original string
print("The original string is : " + str(test_str))
  
# Uppercase check using isupper()
# enumerate() gets indices
res = [idx for idx, chr in enumerate(test_str) if chr.isupper()]
  
# printing result 
print("Uppercase elements indices : " + str(res)) 
Output
The original string is : GeeKsFoRGEEks
Uppercase elements indices : [0, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10]
