numpy string operations | ljust() function

numpy.core.defchararray.ljust(arr, width, fillchar=' ') is another function for doing string operations in numpy. It returns an array with the elements of arr left-justified in a string of length width. It fills remaining space of each array element using fillchr parameter. If fillchr is not passed then it fills remaining spaces with blank space.

Parameters:
arr : array_like of str or unicode.Input array.
width : The final width of the each string .
fillchar : The character to fill in remaining space.

Returns : Output array of str or unicode, depending on input type.
