Python string replace() function is used to create a string by replacing some parts of another string.
Python String replace() function syntax is:
str.replace(old, new[, count])
The original string remains unmodified. The new string is a copy of the original string with all occurrences of substring old replaced by new. If optional argument
count is provided, then only first count occurrences are replaced. We can use this function to replace characters in a string too.
Let’s look at some simple examples of using string replace() function.
s = 'Java is Nice' # simple string replace example str_new = s.replace('Java', 'Python') print(str_new) # replace character in string s = 'dododo' str_new = s.replace('d', 'c') print(str_new)
Python is Nice cococo
s = 'dododo' str_new = s.replace('d', 'c', 2) print(str_new)
input_str = input('Please provide input data\n') delimiter = input('Please provide current delimiter\n') delimiter_new = input('Please provide new delimiter\n') output_str = input_str.replace(delimiter, delimiter_new) print('Updated Data =', output_str)
Please provide input data a,e,i,o,u Please provide current delimiter , Please provide new delimiter : Updated Data = a:e:i:o:u
We can also use str.replace() function as shown below.
print(str.replace('abca', 'a', 'A'))
