Python | Segregate list elements by Suffix
  • Last Updated : 29 Apr, 2019

Sometimes, we need to filter the list with the last character of each string in the list. This type of task has many applications in day-day programming and even in the competitive programming domain. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Method #1 : Using list comprehension + endswith()

In this method, we use list comprehension for traversal logic and the endswith method to filter out all the strings that end with a particular letter. The left strings can be used to make a different list.




# Python3 code to demonstrate
# Segregating by Suffix
# Using list comprehension + endwith()
  
# initializing list
test_list = ['apple', 'oranges', 'mango', 'grapes']
  
# initializing end Suffix
end_letter = 's'
  
# printing original list
print("The original list : " + str(test_list))
  
# using list comprehension + endwith()
# Segregating by Suffix
with_s = [x for x in test_list if x.endswith(end_letter)]
without_s = [x for x in test_list if x not in with_s]
  
# print result
print("The list without suffix s : " + str(without_s))
print("The list with suffix s : " + str(with_s))
Output :
The original list : ['apple', 'oranges', 'mango', 'grapes']
The list without suffix s : ['apple', 'mango']
The list with suffix s : ['oranges', 'grapes']

 



Method #2 : Using filter() + lambda + endwith()

This task can be performed using the filter function with performs the similar task internally as the above function and lambda is helper function to build the logic.




# Python3 code to demonstrate
# Segregating by Suffix
# Using filter() + endwith() + lambda
  
# initializing list
test_list = ['apple', 'oranges', 'mango', 'grapes']
  
# initializing end Suffix
end_letter = 's'
  
# printing original list
print("The original list : " + str(test_list))
  
# using filter() + endwith() + lambda
# Segregating by Suffix
with_s = list(filter(lambda x: x.endswith(end_letter), test_list))
without_s = list(filter(lambda x: not x.endswith(end_letter), test_list))
  
# print result
print("The list without suffix s : " + str(without_s))
print("The list with suffix s : " + str(with_s))
Output :
The original list : ['apple', 'oranges', 'mango', 'grapes']
The list without suffix s : ['apple', 'mango']
The list with suffix s : ['oranges', 'grapes']
