Syntax : string.hexdigits

Parameters : Doesn’t take any parameter, since it’s not a function.

# importing string library function 
import string 
     
# Function checks if input string 
# has only hexdigits or not 
def check(value): 
    for letter in value: 
             
        # If anything other than hexdigit 
        # letter is present, then return 
        # False, else return True 
        if letter not in string.hexdigits: 
            return False
    return True
     
# Driver Code 
input1 = "0123456789abcdef"
print(input1, "--> ",  check(input1)) 
     
input2 = "abcdefABCDEF"
print(input2, "--> ", check(input2)) 
     
input3 = "abcdefghGEEK"
print(input3, "--> ", check(input3))

Output:

0123456789abcdef -->  True
abcdefABCDEF -->  True
abcdefghGEEK -->  False
