# 7.4. Strings and for loops¶

Since a string is simply a sequence of characters, the for loop iterates over each character automatically. (As always, try to predict what the output will be from this code before your run it.)

The loop variable achar is automatically reassigned each character in the string “Go Spot Go”. We will refer to this type of sequence iteration as iteration by item. Note that the for loop processes the characters in a string or items in a sequence one at a time from left to right.
