Adds an item to the list and checks it’s a string.


Return a CaselessList copy of self.


Counts references to ‘item’ in a caseless manner. If item is not a string it will always return 0.


Extend the list with another list. Each member of the list must be a string.


A caseless way of checking if an item is in the list or not. It returns None or the entry.

index(item, minindex=0, maxindex=None)[source]

Provide an index of first occurence of item in the list. (or raise a ValueError if item not present) If item is not a string, will raise a TypeError. minindex and maxindex are also optional arguments s.index(x[, i[, j]]) return smallest k such that s[k] == x and i <= k < j

insert(i, x)[source]

s.insert(i, x) same as s[i:i] = [x] Raises TypeError if x isn’t a string.


Return a normal list version of self.


Return a lowercase (list) copy of self.


Remove the first occurence of an item, the caseless way.
