Python's str.endswith(~) method returns a boolean indicating whether a string ends with the specified suffix.

Parameters

1. suffix | string

The suffix to check for in the source string.

2. start | int | optional

The index position of the source string to start check (inclusive). By default, start=0.

3. end | int | optional

The index position of the source string to stop check (exclusive). By default, end = start + len(suffix).

Return value

A single boolean indicating whether the source string ends with the specified suffix.

Examples

Basic usage

To check whether source string 'abc def' ends with suffix 'ef':

x = "abc def"
x.endswith("ef")
True

Start parameter

To check whether source string 'abc def' ends with suffix 'def', starting at index position 5:

y = "abc def"
y.endswith("def", 5)
False

The search starts at index position 5 which is at 'e'. As 'ef' does not end with the provided suffix of 'def', False is returned.

End parameter

To check whether source string 'abc def' ends with suffix 'bc', starting at index position 0 and ending at index position 3 (exclusive):

z = "abc def"
z.endswith("bc", 0, 3)
True

The start position for the search is index position 0 ('a') and the search ends before index position 3 (' '). Therefore we are checking whether string 'abc' ends with suffix 'bc' which returns True.
