In this article, we will learn about the solution and approach to solve the given problem statement.

Problem statement

Given a list we need to convert into a string type.

Here we will be discussing four different approaches to solve the problem statement given above −

Approach 1: Using concatenation in an empty string.

Example

def listToString(s):
   # empty string
   str1 = ""
   # traversal
   for ele in s:
      str1 += ele
   # return string
   return str1
# main
s = ['tutorials’,’point’]
print(listToString(s))

Output

tutorialspoint

Approach 2: Using .join() function

Example

def listToString(s):
   # initialize an empty string
   str1 = " "
   # return string
   return (str1.join(s))
# Driver code
s = ['tutorials’,’point’]
print(listToString(s))

Output

tutorialspoint

Approach 3: Using list comprehension

Example

s = ['tutorials’,’point’]
# using list comprehension
listToStr = ' '.join([str(elem) for elem in s])
print(listToStr)

Output

tutorialspoint

Approach 4: Using map() function

Example

s = ['tutorials’,’point’]
# using list comprehension
listToStr = ' '.join(map(str, s))
print(listToStr)

Output

tutorialspoint

Conclusion

In this article, we learned about the approach to convert list to string.
