Parses commonly used range notations to python objects

Project description

py-range-parse Contributors MIT License Code Size https://badge.fury.io/py/py-range-parse Build Status

py-range-parse is a library to parse commonly used range notations to python objects that act like sets.

py-range-parse is used by

and hopefully many others :)

How to use

pip install py-range-parse
from py_range_parse import parse_range

range = parse_range("[0..5]")

or create on manually:

from py_range_parse import Range
range = Range(0,5)

Input formats

When parsing a Range from a str any whitespace is ignored.

int ranges

If both the start and end value are of type int, the resulting Range will only consider integers as part of it. If you want to include float values as well, at least one of the values has to be a float.

  • [-2 .. 5]
  • [10 .. 1]

If the end value is bigger than the start value the resulting range will automatically be inverted. Therefore range.start <= range.end is always True in a Range.

float ranges

A float Range includes every possible float value between the start and end value.

  • [-2.2 .. 5.123]
  • [-2.0 .. 5]

Infinity

Infinity can also be specified using both inf as well as the unicode symbol . Since it is internally represented using math.inf it will behave like a float.

  • ]-inf .. inf[
  • ]-∞ .. ∞[

Exclude borders

The start and end values can be excluded from the Range independent of one another using the open bracket notation.

  • ]0 .. 5.5]
  • ]0 .. inf[

Operations

Contains

You can easily check if a value is within a given Range like this:

> from py_range_parse import parse_range
> range = parse_range("[0 .. 5]")
> print(4 in range)
True

Comparison

You can compare equality of two Range instances using the == operator. For two ranges to be equal they have to have the same

  • start value
  • end value
  • start inclusion
  • end inclusion
  • type (int or float)
> from py_range_parse import parse_range
> range1 = parse_range("[0 .. 5]")
> range2 = parse_range("[0 .. 5]")
> range3 = parse_range("[0 .. 5.0]")
> print(range1 == range2)
True
> print(range1 == range3)
False
