Python Dictionary  index operator
Using the index  operator, the value in a dictionary can be retrieved or set. If the key doesn't exist, Python will throw a KeyError exception.
Python Dictionary copy() Method
Copies all the items in the dictionary to another dictionary which is then returned. Changes to the old dictionary do not the copied dictionary, and changes in the copied dictionary do not affect the old dictionary.
Python Dictionary fromkeys() Method
Returns a dictionary from a list of keys and sets them all to the specified
value. If the value is omitted, the value all keys are set to is None
Python Dictionary get() Method
Returns the value of the specified key.
Python Dictionary items() Method
Returns a list containing the tuple for each key-value pair. This is what Python calls a "view object" which means that the object can only be viewed - it cannot be changed, nor can the tuple items be accessed.
Python Dictionary keys() Method
Returns a list of the dictionary's keys. The returned object is a "view object" - it cannot be changed.
Python Dictionary pop() Method
Removes the element with the specified key, and returns that value, or returns a default value if they key isn't found in the dictionary.
Python Dictionary clear() Method
Removes all elements from the dictionary.
Python Dictionary popitem() Method
Removes the last key-value pair that was inserted and returns that key-value pair as a tuple.
Python Dictionary setdefault() Method
Returns the value of the item with the specified key. If the key doesn't exist, the key is inserted into the dictionary with the supplied value, and that value is returned. If the key doesn't exist and no default value is supplied, nothing is returned.
Python Dictionary update() Method
Updates the dictionary with the specified key-value pairs. If the key exists, the value will be updated. If the key does not exist, the value will be inserted using the given key.
Python Dictionary values() Method
Returns a list of the values in the dictionary. The returned object is
object, which in Python is a "view object" - it cannot be changed,
only viewed, iterated over, or converted to a list or other collection.
A Python dictionary is a set of key-value pairs where the key is the index to the value. For example, think of a store where each item has a price:
The Python Dictionary ** unpack operator
When passing a dictionary to a function, the key-value pairs can be unpacked into keyword arguments in a function call where the dictionary keys match the parameter names of the function.
