How can I do case insensitive string comparison in Python?
I would like to encapsulate comparison of a regular strings to a repository string using in a very simple and Pythonic way. I also would like to have ability to look up values in a dict hashed by strings using regular python strings.
Assuming ASCII strings:
string1 = 'Hello' string2 = 'hello' if string1.lower() == string2.lower(): print("The strings are the same (case insensitive)") else: print("The strings are NOT the same (case insensitive)")
