Given a string, write a python function to check if it is palindrome or not. A string is said to be palindrome if reverse of the string is same as string. For example, “radar” is palindrome, but “radix” is not palindrome.
Input : malayalam Output : Yes Input : geeks Output : No
1) Find reverse of string
2) Check if reverse and original are same or not.
Iterative Method: This method is contributed by Shariq Raza. Run loop from starting to length/2 and check first character to last character of string and second to second last one and so on …. If any character mismatches, the string wouldn’t be palindrome.
Below is the implementation of above approach:
Method using inbuilt function to reverse a string: This method is contributed by Shariq Raza. In this method, predefined function ‘ ‘.join(reversed(string)) is used to reverse string.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
Method using one extra variable: In this method user take a character of string one by one and store in a empty variable.After storing all the character user will compare both the string and check whether it is palindrome or not.
