I have a string that I’m trying to strip the last camel cased word off if it matches any of these words specified in the regex by doing
my_string = 'myFileCins' my_string.strip("(Cins)?(V2)?(Fitch)?$")
This returns ‘myFile’ which is fine. However it looks like if the string starts with the letter "c" (based on my testing) it will strip off the first letter of the string as well.
my_string = 'cyFile' my_string.strip("(Cins)?(V2)?(Fitch)?$")
will return ‘yFile’. I was wondering how I can fix this since I thought my regex is specified to only strip those specific whole words in the string
str.strip(...) for regex? It doesn’t have to do a anything with regex. Use
my_string = 'cyFile' pattern = r'\b(Cins|V2|Fitch)$' result = re.sub(pattern, '', my_string)
