In this Python program, we will have a look at How to find the most occurring character and its count in Python programming language.
Python program to find the most occurring character and its count
from collections import Counter def find_most_occ_char(input): wc = Counter(input) s = max(wc.values()) i = wc.values().index(s) print wc.items()[i] if __name__ == "__main__": input = 'codeatglance' find_most_occ_char(input)
Output: (‘a’, 2)
In the above code, we have passed the characters as “codeatglance” and therefore we get the output as ‘a’ as the most occurring character in the string.
