Python Dictionary Methods

Below are the Python Dictionary methods and each method is explained with examples.

len()This function returns the number of items in the dictionary.
dict()This method is used to create a dictionary in Python.
clear()This method removes all items from the dictionary.
copy()This method returns a copy of a dictionary in Python.
fromkeys(sequence[, value])This method creates a new dictionary from the given sequence of elements with a value provided by the user.
get(key[, value])This method returns the value for the given key, if present in the dictionary. If not, it returns a default value.
items()This method returns a new object of the dictionary’s items in (key, value) format.
keys()This method returns a new object of the Python dictionary’s keys.
pop(key[, default])This method removes an item with the provided key and returns the value. If the key is not found, it returns the default value.
popitem()This method removes and returns an arbitrary (key, value) pair from the dictionary.
setdefault(key[, default])This method returns the value of a key (if the key is in a dictionary). If not, it inserts the key with a value to a Python dictionary.
update([other])This method updates the dictionary with the elements from another dictionary object or from an iterable of key/value pairs.
values()Returns a view object displaying a list of a python dictionary’s values.

I hope you can implement these dictionary methods in Python now.
