# Day 35 Of 100DayOfCode: More About Python Iterator And Generator Durga Pokharel
A mathematics student learning to code.

Today is my 35 day of #100DaysOfCode and #Python. Like yesterday today also continue to learn about web access on python, Database using python, complete some assignment.

Also learned more about python iterator and python generator. Tried to write some code on python iterator.

# Code On Python Iterator And Generator

We know that python generator is like a python function. There are no more different in both. Instead of return statement we used yield statement in python generator. There are many advantage of python generator over python function but I know one is python function return statement terminates a function entirely but in generators yield statement pauses the function saving all its states and later continue from there on successive calls. Here is some code,

``````def Integers():
i = 1
while True:
yield i
i = i + 1
def fibonacci_number(n):
a = 0
b = 1
fib = [ a,b]

for i in range(n):
f = a+b
a = b
b = f
fib.append(f)
yield fib

def take(n , fibo):
seq = iter(fibo)
result = []
try:
for i in range(n):
result.append(next(fibo))
except StopIteration:
pass
return result
print(take(10, fibonacci_number(10)))
``````

When above code run we can get following output,

``````[[0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89]]
``````

Here is another example

``````import string
print("List Iteration")
def fibonacci_number(n):
a = 0
b = 1
fib = [ a,b]

for i in range(n):
f = a+b
a = b
b = f
fib.append(f)
return fib

print(fibonacci_number(10))

# Iterating over a tuple (immutable)
print("\nTuple Iteration")
d = {'a':10, 'b':1, 'c':22}
l = list()
for key, val in d.items() :
l.append( (val, key) )
l.sort(reverse=True)
print(l)

# Iterating over a String
print("\nString Iteration")
s = "Geeks"
for i in s :
print(i)

# Iterating over dictionary
print("\nDictionary Iteration")
fhand = open('mbox-short.txt')
counts = dict()
for line in fhand:
words = line.split()
for word in words:
if word not in counts:
counts[word] = 1
else:
counts[word] += 1
lst = list()
for key,val in counts.items():
lst.append((val,key))

lst.sort(reverse = True)
for key,val in lst[:10]:
print(key,val)
``````

When we run above code we get following output.

``````List Iteration
[0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89]

Tuple Iteration
[(22, 'c'), (10, 'a'), (1, 'b')]

## Discussion (9) Pereira Júlio

In the weekend do you also coding ? ヘンタイちゃん

Not the one you're asking, but I am also doing the #100DaysOfCode challenge (I update my progress on twitter though), but yeah I also code on the weekend. You don't have to spend a ton of hours every day, just a little is enough to keep the cycle alive. But you can also play according to your own rules and make a break on weekends. Pereira Júlio

Thank you, I'm a Junior Frontend Developer and all ideas of people will help me to create my own routine. Thank you ! Durga Pokharel • Edited

Yes, I am doing. I am new in this field , I need to learn more, I want to begin my profession in this field so I did not take break even in weekend.
