Python String isdigit()

Unicode digits include decimal characters and digits that need special handling, such as the compatibility superscript digits. This covers digits which cannot be used to form numbers in base 10, like the Kharosthi numbers. A digit is a character that has the property value Numeric_Type=Digit or Numeric_Type=Decimal.

Let’s look at some of the examples of isdigit() function.


s = '100'

print(s.isdigit())

Output: True because all the characters in the string are digits.


s = '0xF'
print(s.isdigit())

Output: False because the string characters are not digits.


s = '10.55'
print(s.isdigit())

Output: False because dot character is not a digit character.


s = ''
print(s.isdigit())

Output: False because string is empty.


s = '1٠2𝟜'  # U+0660=0, U+1D7DC=4
print(s.isdigit())
print(int(s))

Output:


True
1024

Printing all Digit characters in Python

We can use unicode module to check if a character is digit or not. Here is the program to print all the digit Unicode characters.


import unicodedata

count = 0
for codepoint in range(2 ** 16):
    ch = chr(codepoint)
    if ch.isdigit():
        print(u'{:04x}: {} ({})'.format(codepoint, ch, unicodedata.name(ch, 'UNNAMED')))
        count = count + 1
print(f'Total Number of Digit Unicode Characters = {count}')

Output:


...
ff16: 6 (FULLWIDTH DIGIT SIX)
ff17: 7 (FULLWIDTH DIGIT SEVEN)
ff18: 8 (FULLWIDTH DIGIT EIGHT)
ff19: 9 (FULLWIDTH DIGIT NINE)
Total Number of Digit Unicode Characters = 465

I have provided only partial output because the number of digit Unicode characters is huge.
