Python String upper() Function

Python String upper() function converts complete String into Uppercase and returns a new string. Strings are immutable in String, so the original string value remains unchanged.

Key Points :

  • Return Type: String
  • Parametric Values: No parameters can be passed into the upper() function.
  • Converts whole of string into uppercase
  • It does not modify the original string. The modified string can be saved with a new variable name.

Example: Given String – “Have a Nice Day” Or “Have A NICE DAY” Or “have a nice day” Or “Have a nice day”

New String After Using upper() Function: “HAVE A NICE DAY” (for all the above-given strings)
