Simply take the string and pass it to the list().
Note: You can’t use the split method for it, because this method needed a separator.
Python split string by character example
Simple example code.
Using List Comprehension
s = "Hello" res = [char for char in s] print(res)
Typecasting to list
Using list function to direct typecasting of string into a list.
s = "Hello" res = list(s) print(res)
Using for loop
This method will print each char, not as a list.
s = "Hello" for c in s: print(c)
You can use any character as the delimiter to split the string. For example, to split a string by a hyphen, you can use the following code:
my_string = "red-green-blue" my_list = my_string.split("-") print(my_list) # ['red', 'green', 'blue']
