NumPy: Remove the leading whitespaces of all the elements of a given array

NumPy String: Exercise-8 with Solution

Write a NumPy program to remove the leading whitespaces of all the elements of a given array.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

import numpy as np
x = np.array([' python exercises ', ' PHP  ', ' java  ', '  C++'], dtype=np.str)
print("Original Array:")
print(x)
lstripped_char = np.char.lstrip(x)
print("\nRemove the leading whitespaces : ", lstripped_char)

Sample Input:

([' python exercises ', ' PHP  ', ' java  ', '  C++'], dtype=np.str)

Sample Output:

Original Array:
[' python exercises ' ' PHP  ' ' java  ' '  C++']

Remove the leading whitespaces :  ['python exercises ' 'PHP  ' 'java  ' 'C++']
