# Return a boolean array where the string element in array ends with a given suffix but test begin and end in Python

To return a boolean array which is True where the string element in array ends with suffix, use the numpy.char.endswith() method in Python Numpy. The method outputs an array of bools. The first parameter is the input array. The second parameter is the suffix. With optional start parameter, test beginning at that position. With optional end parameter, stop comparing at that position.

## Steps

At first, import the required library −

import numpy as np

Create a One-Dimensional array of strings −

arr = np.array(['KATIE', 'JOHN', 'KATE', 'AmY', 'CRADlE'])

Displaying our array −

print("Array...\n",arr)

Get the datatype −

print("\nArray datatype...\n",arr.dtype)


Get the dimensions of the Array −

print("\nArray Dimensions...\n",arr.ndim)

Get the shape of the Array −

print("\nOur Array Shape...\n",arr.shape)

Get the number of elements of the Array −

print("\nNumber of elements in the Array...\n",arr.size)

To return a boolean array which is True where the string element in array ends with suffix, use the numpy.char.endswith() method −

print("\nResult (endswith)...\n",np.char.endswith(arr, 'E', start = 2, end = 4))


## Example

import numpy as np

# Create a One-Dimensional array of strings
arr = np.array(['KATIE', 'JOHN', 'KATE', 'AmY', 'CRADlE'])

# Displaying our array
print("Array...\n",arr)

# Get the datatype
print("\nArray datatype...\n",arr.dtype)

# Get the dimensions of the Array
print("\nArray Dimensions...\n",arr.ndim)

# Get the shape of the Array
print("\nOur Array Shape...\n",arr.shape)

# Get the number of elements of the Array
print("\nNumber of elements in the Array...\n",arr.size)

# To return a boolean array which is True where the string element in array ends with suffix, use the numpy.char.endswith() method in Python Numpy
# The method outputs an array of bools.

print("\nResult (endswith)...\n",np.char.endswith(arr, 'E', start = 2, end = 4))

## Output

Array...

Array datatype...
<U6

Array Dimensions...
1

Our Array Shape...
(5,)

Number of elements in the Array...
5

Result (endswith)...
[False False True False False]
