Python: Matches a word at end of string, with optional punctuation

Python Regular Expression: Exercise-11 with Solution

Write a Python program that matches a word at end of string, with optional punctuation.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

import re
def text_match(text):
        patterns = '\w+\S*$'
        if re.search(patterns,  text):
                return 'Found a match!'
        else:
                return('Not matched!')

print(text_match("The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."))
print(text_match("The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. "))
print(text_match("The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog "))

Sample Output:

Found a match!                                                                                                
Not matched!
