In python there is no implicit concept of data types, though explicit conversion of data types is possible, but it not easy for us to instruct operator to work in a way and understand the data type of operand and manipulate according to that. For e.g Adding 1 to a character, if we require to increment the character, an error instructing type conflicts occur, hence other ways need to be formulated to increment the characters.
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/fabc221bf999b96195c763bf3c03ddca.py", line 9, in s = s + 1 TypeError: cannot concatenate 'str' and 'int' objects
The incremented character value is : P
Explanation : ord() returns the corresponding ASCII value of character and after adding integer to it, chr() again converts it into character.
The value of M after incrementing 10 places is : W
Explanation : The character is converted to byte string , incremented, and then again converted to string form with prefix “‘b”, hence 3rd value gives the correct output.
