is_anagram

stringintermediate

Checks if a string is an anagram of another string (case-insensitive, ignores spaces, punctuation and special characters).

Use s.replace() to remove spaces from both strings. Compare the lengths of the two strings, return False if they are not equal. Use sorted() on both strings and compare the results.

def is_anagram(s1, s2):
  _str1, _str2 = s1.replace(" ", ""), s2.replace(" ", "")

  if len(_str1) != len(_str2):
    return False
  else:
    return sorted(_str1.lower()) == sorted(_str2.lower())
