# Python Program to Group Strings by K length Using Suffix

When it is required to group strings by K length using a suffix, a simple iteration and the ‘try’ and ‘except’ blocks are used.

## Example

Below is a demonstration of the same

my_list = ['peek', "leak", 'creek', "weak", "good", 'week', "wood", "sneek"]

print("The list is :")
print(my_list)

K = 3

print("The value of K is ")
print(K)

my_result = {}

for element in my_list:
suff = element[-K : ]
try:
my_result[suff].append(element)
except:
my_result[suff] = [element]

print("The resultant list is :")
print(my_result)

## Output

The list is :
['peek', 'leak', 'creek', 'weak', 'good', 'week', 'wood', 'sneek']
The value of K is
3
The resultant list is :
{'ood': ['good', 'wood'], 'eak': ['leak', 'weak'], 'eek': ['peek', 'creek', 'week', 'sneek']}

## Explanation

• A list of strings is defined and is displayed on the console.

• The value of ‘K’ is defined and is displayed on the console.

• An empty dictionary is defined.

• The list is iterated over.

• The list is reversed and assigned to a variable.

• The ‘try’ block is used to append the element to the dictionary.

• The ‘except’ block assigns the element to the list’s specific index.

• This list is the output that is displayed on the console.
