For every infix operator, e.g.
+ there is a
1 + 1 # Output: 2 from operator import add add(1, 1) # Output: 2
even though the main documentation states that for the arithmetic operators only numerical input is allowed it is possible:
from operator import mul mul('a', 10) # Output: 'aaaaaaaaaa' mul(, 3) # Output: [3, 3, 3]
