Write the function
is_substring(word_1, word_2). The function should use the
in operator to determine if the string word_1 is a substring of word_2. The string word_1 is a substring of word_2 if all of the characters of word_1 exist sequentially inside of word_2.
|print(is_substring(“lend me your ears”, “me”))||True|
|print(is_substring(“lend me your ears”, “you”))||True|
|print(is_substring(“lend me your ears”, “you’re”))||False|
Write the function
reverse(text). The function should use the
for character in word style of loop to reverse the characters in text.
Most of us like to keep secrets. For example, I don’t want you to know my credit card number. I’d rather you not be able to buy things with my money. However, communication over the Internet is like trying to shout in a crowded room. Everyone can hear what you are saying. So, to protect our valuable secrets, we rely on encryption schemes. Today, you are going to implement a simplistic encryption scheme known since Roman times: Caesar cipher.
Encryption in the Caesar schema relies on shifting letters in the alphabet. By default, this shift is 3 letters. So, a becomes d, b becomes e, etc. The only issue with this is at the end of the alphabet. The end of the alphabet wraps around to the front. So, x becomes a, y becomes b, and z becomes c.
Write two functions
decrypt(text) that take a single string as a parameter. The
encrypt function should return the encryption of the text parameter using Ceasar cipher. The
decrypt function should return the decription of the text parameter using the Ceasar cipher.
ordfunction gives you the ASCII representation of a character.
- Test if shifted characters are no longer in the range a-z, by comparing their ordinal value to the ordinal value of z.
- Shift characters that are outside of the range a-z by substracting enough to shift them back into the correct range.
chrfunction takes an integer, and returns to you the character that represents the ASCII value.
