4.3. Strings are Immutable¶
Even though you can manipulate a string to create a new string the original string is immutable which means that it doesn’t change. Notice that after you execute the code below the string stored in the variable
sentence hasn’t changed.
While the strings themselves can’t be changed you can change the value of a variable. This throws away the original string and sets the variable’s value to the new string.
