  • You can use the following way for getting the length of an array in Python

my_list = [1,2,3,4,5]

len(my_list)

  • So instead of arr.__len__() you can use:-

import array

arr = array.array('i')

arr.append('2')  

len(arr)

    image

To know more about this you can have a look at the following video tutorial:-
