Python program to find maximum uppercase run
  • Last Updated : 11 Dec, 2020

Giving a String, write a Python program to find maximum run of uppercase characters.


Input : test_str = ‘GeEKSForGEEksISBESt’ 
Output : 5 
Explanation : ISBES is best run of uppercase.

Input : test_str = ‘GeEKSForGEEKSISBESt’ 
Output : 10 
Explanation : GEEKSISBES is best run of uppercase. 

Method : Using isupper() + loop

In this, we update maximum run when non-uppercase is encountered otherwise counter is incremented if character is uppercase.


# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Maximum uppercase run
# Using isupper() + loop 
# initializing string
test_str = 'GeEKSForGEEksISBESt'
# printing original string
print("The original string is : " + str(test_str))
cnt = 0
res = 0
for idx in range(0, len(test_str)):
    # updating run count on uppercase
    if test_str[idx].isupper():
        cnt += 1
    # on lowercase, update the maxrun
    else :
        res = cnt 
        cnt = 0
if test_str[len(test_str) - 1].isupper(): 
    res = cnt
# printing result
print("Maximum Uppercase Run : " + str(res))


The original string is : GeEKSForGEEksISBESt
Maximum Uppercase Run : 5
