Python Else & Finally In Try Except
try and except block:
In the try block, we write the code in which an exception might occur, and in except block, we write the code as a result if an exception occurs. This could either be a print statement or the error itself. If no exception occurs, the except block will not execute. The purpose of try and except is to keep the program running either an error or exception occurs. In simple programs, if an error occurs, the program stops its execution and displays the error onto the screen. We can show the error as a string onto the screen by using try and except, and the program could continue its execution after that.
Now moving on to the else keyword. We use an else keyword to print something in cases where no exception occurs. Suppose that an exception occurred, and the except block is printing the error; likewise, if the exception does not occur, we can print a statement that no error occurred, using an else keyword. Syntax of using else with try and except block is:
Note: An else will only run in the case where no exception occurs.

Now the last keyword for this tutorial, i.e., finally, will run in either case. It is also known as code cleaner because it will perform its action, either an exception occurs or not. We write such commands in the finally part of the code that we want to execute, even an exception occurs or not. It is mostly used to clean resources or close files.
1. In the try block, all the statements are executed until an exception occurs.
2. Except block is used to catch and handle the exception(s) that occurs during the execution of the try block.
3. Else block runs only when no exceptions occur in the execution of the try block.
4. Finally block always runs; either an exception occurs or not.
