Access Values in Dictionaries

To access dictionary elements, you use the familiar square brackets along with the key to obtain its value:

Example

>>> dict2 = {'name':'earth','port':80}
>>> dict2
{'name': 'earth', 'port': 80}
>>> dict2['name']
'earth'
>>> dict2['port']
80
>>> dict2.has_key('name')
True
>>> dict2.keys()
['name', 'port']
>>> dict2.values()
['earth', 80]
