Checking String Start Character Using Lambda

Write a Python program that uses a lambda function to check if a given string starts with a specified character. The function should return True if the string starts with the specified character, and False otherwise.

Example 1:

Input: 'hello', 'h' 
Output: True

Example 2:

Input: 'world', 'x' 
Output: False

Use a lambda function to create an anonymous function that checks whether a string starts with a specified character.

# Define the lambda function
check_start_char = lambda s, c: True if s[0].lower() == c.lower() else False

# Test the function
print(check_start_char('hello', 'h')) # Output: True
print(check_start_char('world', 'x')) # Output: False
