Python | Range duplication in String

Sometimes, while working with Strings, we can have a problem in which we need to replicate the range of strings consecutively in range. This kind of problem can have application in day-day programming domain. Lets discuss certain way in which this task can be performed.

Method : Using string slicing
This is straight forward way to solve this problem. In this, we perform the task of slicing the string to be repeated and attach its duplicate. The pre and post slices are attached to its prefix and suffic respectively to construct result string.





# Python3 code to demonstrate working of 
# Range duplication in String
# Using string slicing
# initializing string
test_str = "geeksforgeeks"
# printing original string
print("The original string is : " + test_str)
# initializing range 
i, j = 3, 6
# Range duplication in String
# Using string slicing
temp = test_str[i:j] * 2 
res = test_str[:i] + temp + test_str[j:]
# printing result 
print("The string after range duplication : " + res) 


Output :

The original string is : geeksforgeeks
The string after range duplication : geeksfksforgeeks
