Python: Search some literals strings in a string
Python Regular Expression: Exercise-19 with Solution
Write a Python program to search some literals strings in a string.
import re patterns = [ 'fox', 'dog', 'horse' ] text = 'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.' for pattern in patterns: print('Searching for "%s" in "%s" ->' % (pattern, text),) if re.search(pattern, text): print('Matched!') else: print('Not Matched!')
Searching for "fox" in "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog." -> Matched! Searching for "dog" in "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog." -> Matched! Searching for "horse" in "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog." -> Not Matched!
