isogram checker in python

by maxguy71

A heterogram is a word, phrase, or sentence in which no letter of the alphabet occurs more than once.

The terms isogram and nonpattern word have also been used to mean the same thing

Isogram has also been used to mean a string where each letter present is used the same number of times. Multiple terms have been used to describe words where each letter used appears a certain number of times.

For example, a word where every featured letter appears twice, like “appeases”, might be called a pair isogram, a second-order isogram, or a 2-isogram.

A perfect pangram is an example of a heterogram, with the added restriction that it uses all the letters of the alphabet.

Code Examples

def isogram_checker(word):
    # Convert to lower case
    clean_word = word.lower()
    # Make a list for unique letters
    letter_list = []
    for letter in clean_word:
        if letter.isalpha():
            if letter in letter_list:
                return False
    return True



def is_isogram(string):
    # if not a Str then return False
    if type(string) is not str:
        return False
    # if empty then return True
    if len(string)==0:
        return True
    # store characters
    db = set()
    # loop through the string, but lowercase it first
    for char in string.lower():
        # if it's already been seen, then return False
        if char in db:
            return False
            # otherwise add to the db
    # return True if not failed
    return True
