Python's str.isprintable() method returns a boolean indicating whether all the characters in a string are printable.

NOTE

A printable character is a character that occupiers space on the screen e.g. letters, symbols, digits, punctuation, whitespace. Examples of non-printable characters include carriage returns and line feeds.

Parameters

No parameters.

Return value

A single boolean indicating whether all the characters in the string are printable.

Examples

Printable

To check whether all characters in '#SkyTowner_123!' are printable:

x = '#SkyTowner_123!'
x.isprintable()
True

To check whether all characters in '' are printable:

y = ''
y.isprintable()
True

Note that an empty string is considered printable.

Non-printable

To check whether all characters in 'Hello!\nWelcome to Skytowner!' are printable:

z = 'Hello!\nWelcome to Skytowner!'
z.isprintable()
False

\n representing a new line is not a printable character hence False is returned.
