# all() Builtin Function

## Python – all()

Python all() builtin function is used to check if all the items in a given iterable are True.

all() returns a boolean value of True if all the items in the given iterable are True, else it return False.

In this tutorial, you will learn the syntax of abs() function, and then its usage with the help of example programs.

### Syntax

The syntax of `all()` function is

``all(x)``

where

## Examples

### 1. Check if all items in list are True

In the following program, we take a list of items `x` where all items are `True`, and find out the output of `all()` with `x` passed as argument to it.

Python Program

``````x = [True, True, True, True]
output = all(x)
print(f'x      : {x}')
print(f'all(x) : {output}')``````

Output

``````x      : [True, True, True, True]
all(x) : True``````

Now, let us change some of the items in `x` to `False`, and find out the output.

Python Program

``````x = [True, False, True, True]
output = all(x)
print(f'x      : {x}')
print(f'all(x) : {output}')``````

Output

``````x      : [True, False, True, True]
all(x) : False``````

### 2. Check if all the strings are non-empty in a list

An empty string is `False`, and a non-empty string is `True` in terms of logical values. So, if we need to check if all the items in given list are non-empty strings, pass the list of strings to `all()` function.

Python Program

``````x = ["apple", "banana", "cherry"]
output = all(x)
print(f'x      : {x}')
print(f'all(x) : {output}')``````

Output

``````x      : ['apple', 'banana', 'cherry']
all(x) : True``````

Now, let us take some empty strings in the list and find out the result.

Python Program

``````x = ["apple", "", "cherry"]
output = all(x)
print(f'x      : {x}')
print(f'all(x) : {output}')``````

Output

``````x      : ['apple', '', 'cherry']
all(x) : False``````

## Summary

In this tutorial of Python Examples, we learned the syntax of all() function, and how to find if all the items in the given iterator are True using all() with examples.
