Python String Replace

replace method :

This method returns a copy of the string in which all the occurrences of old string ( passed as a first argument ) had been replaced by the new string ( passed as a second argument ). If optional third argument count  is passed, then replace method limits the replacement operation ( new string replacing old string ) to the maximum of number count.

Syntax : < String Object >.join( old_String, new_String[, count] ) :  < String Object >

Example:

# create one string and assign it to variable s s = 'I am here and only here and only here' # call replace() method on string s by passing 'here' (old string) and 'there' (new string) as an argument output = s.replace('here','there') # print the value of variable output print(output) # call replace() method on string s by passing 'here' (old string), 'there' (new string) and 2 as an argument output = s.replace('here','there',2) # print the value of variable output print(output)
