substring in python

 
0
 

I have a table with product codes, the first two chars of the product code is the product group.
using the product group I'd like to test the content of certain data.

Would this be proper coding or is there a better way ?

if prodcust_code[:2] == "AB" do:
   ABsubroutine
if prodcust_code[:2] == "CC" do:
   CCsubroutine
if prodcust_code[:2] == "EF" do:
   EFsubroutine
if prodcust_code[:2] == "US" do:
   USsubroutine

Something like this look better,and 'do' is not used in Python.

s = 'ABsomething'
if s.startswith(('AB','CC','EF','US')):
    print '{}subroutine'.format(s[:2])
else:
    print 'Substring not found'

If you want to call the appropriate function, do this ...

code = prodcust_code[:2]
if code == "AB":
   function_AB()
elif code == "CC":
   function_CC()
elif code == "EF":
   function_EF()
elif code == "US":
   function_US()
else:
    print("No function found for {}".format(code))
