Reverse String Without Changing Place of Special Characters

Hi Programmer,

Today we are going to solve a string problem in python. Here you will get a string containing numbers and some special characters. We have to reverse this string without changing the place of the special characters.

*Input: * "123$456%789*0^"

*Output: * "098$765%432*1^"

So let's start our coding

Solution: 1

seq = "123$456%789*0^"
output = "098$765%432*1^"

chars = ['$', '%', '*', '#', '^']
nums = []

for i in range(len(seq)):
    if seq[i] not in chars:


for j in seq:
    if j in chars:
        idx = seq.index(j)
        nums.insert(idx, j)

reverse = "".join(nums)


Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Solution: 2

ip_str = "123$456%789*0^"

rev_str = reversed(ip_str)
op_str  = ""
for value in ip_str:
  if value.isdigit():
    for rev_val in rev_str:
      if rev_val.isdigit():
        op_str += rev_val
    op_str += value
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Here there were two types we can solve this problem. There can be more type also if you find anything, let's discuss in the room.
