A user input refers to any data or instructions that a user enters into a computer program or system. This can include text, numbers, selections from a menu or list, or other data types.


You can convert user input to a set in Python using the built-in “set()” function, “input()” function, and “split()” function. 

  • set function: Python’s set() function creates a new set object. A set is a collection of unique elements, meaning no element can appear more than once in a set. 
  • input function: The input() function in Python is used to get input from the user. It is a built-in function that allows a program to receive input from the user a string. 
  • split function: A string can be divided into a list of substrings depending on a delimiter using the split() method in Python. The delimiter is a character or a string that separates the substrings in the original string. The default delimiter is any whitespace character, such as a space or a tab.
