In this tutorial, we will learn to implement python
bin() library method. The main use of
bin() function is, it converts and returns the binary equivalent string of a given integer.
What if, the parameter of bin method is not an integer?
In this case,
bin() method implements
__index__() method to return an integer.
The bin method take only one parameter. Below is the syntax for
bin( X )
# X can be an integer, or object, or anything the returns integer.
1. Executing the bin() Method
If you pass a string, or anything that doesn't an integer, as a parameter you will get TypeError exception saying the type cannot be interpreted as an integer.
Be aware of that, while using
number = 10
print('The binary equivalent of 5 is:', bin(number))
After executing the program, the output will be:
The binary equivalent of 5 is: 0b1010
2. How to use __index__() method with Objects
__index__() is used to convert an object into a binary equivalent string.
study = 10
to = 20
night = 40
return self.study+ self.to+ self.night
print('The binary equivalent of quantity is:', bin(StudyToNight()))
After Executing the program, the output will be:
The binary equivalent of quantity is: 0b1000110
