Casting is when you convert a variable value from one type to another. This is, in Python, done with functions such as
Python is an object-orientated language, and as such it uses classes to define data types, including its primitive types.
Casting in python is therefore done using constructor functions:
This Python cast function is used to construct any integral number with the help of an integral literal, a string literal (obtained by rounding down the previous whole number), or a float literal (a whole number is represented by providing a string).
x = int(2)
y = int(4.8)
z = int(“8”)
This construction function helps in the construction of any float number with the help of a float literal, an integral literal, or a string literal (if a float or an integer is represented by a string).
x = float(4)
y = float(7.8)
z = float(“5”)
w = float(“2.4”)
This construction function helps in the construction of any string with the help of a lot of different data types.
x = str(“s2”)
y = str(9)
z = str(5.0)
