The Python interpreter has a set of functions and types built into it (pre-defined). They are always ready at your disposal; you can use them without needing to import a library.
There are 68 built-in functions and they are listed here in alphabetical order.
- Takes in a numeric data type such as int or float and returns the absolute value of the argument.
- Returns True if every item in an iterable evaluates to True, otherwise, it returns False.
- Takes in an iterable object such as a list or tuple and returns True if any of the elements in the iterable are True. If none of the elements in the iterable are True, returns False.
- Receives as input an object containing string data, and returns the object as a printable representation with escapes for non-ASCII characters (accented characters).
- Converts an integer into its binary equivalent string.
- Converts a value to a Boolean True or False value.
- Engages, configures, and changes the debugger program used in a script.
- Returns an array of the given bytes of an object.
- Returns a byte immutable object representing the given bytes of an object.
- Returns True if an object is callable, and False if an object is not callable.
- Returns Unicode characters represented by integers ranging between 0 and 1,114,111.
- Converts a given function into a class method.
- Returns a runnable code object created from a string.
- Converts a given string into a complex number.
- Allows the user to delete attributes from an object.
- Initializes a new dictionary from mapping n-number of object (key, value) pairs.
- Takes in a numeric, string, or no value and a copy of that value in the floating point data type.
- Takes in a value from the user and converts the value into a string.
- Takes in a value that can be converted into an integer, and returns a copy of the value in the int datatype.
- Returns the highest value from values given or an iterable.
- Returns the lowest value from values given or an iterable.
- Returns the value of a base number x to the power of an exponent y, with an optional modulus z.
- Prints the string representation of an object.
- Takes in an iterator object, such as a list or string, and returns a reversed iterator object.
- Takes a number and an integer as parameters, and returns the number with decimal places equal to the integer.
- Takes in an iterator object, such as a list, tuple, dictionary, set, or string, and sorts it according to a parameter.
- Takes in a value that can be converted into a string, and returns a copy of the value in the string datatype.
- Takes multiple iterators as input and returns a single zip object made up of a list of tuples.
