In this post we will be creating a Python script that will remove specific characters from a string, to do this we will be using the ‘re’ module which provides regular expression matching operations similar to those found in Perl.
See the below string which contains the ‘!’, ‘#’, ‘$’ characters which we are wanting to remove.
See the snippet of code below where we make use of the ‘sub()’ method to replace/remove the characters from out string.
import re string="He!llo# World$" string = re.sub('[!#$]', '', string) print(string)
The above would return the following as output.
Hello World >>>
