Your question is too general. It is like:
"I am new to carpentry and wood-working. How do I use a tool?"
Which tool? Hammer, electric drill, hand saw, electric saw, screwdriver,
crowbar, something else?
The API tells you how to use a library. That's what API means: "Application
The API for integers includes:
- add integers using the + operator: 1 + 2
- multiply integers using the * operator: 3 * 4
The API for strings include:
- use either single quotes to create a string: 'hello world'
- or double quotes: "hello world"
- call the upper() method with no arguments to return an uppercase
version of the string: 'hello'.upper() -> 'HELLO'
- call the split() method with no arguments to split the string
on whitespace: 'hello world'.split() -> ['hello', 'world']
- call the split() method with a string argument to split the string
on that string: 'hello world'.split('o') -> ['hell', 'w', 'rld']
and so on and so on and so on. Can you ask a more specific question?
