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!

Merges two or more lists into a list of lists, combining elements from each of the input lists based on their positions
def tips_merge(*args, fill_value=None): max_length = max([len(lst) for lst in args]) result =  for i in range(max_length): result.append([ args[k][i] if i < len(args[k]) else fill_value for k in range(len(args)) ]) return result print(tips_merge(['x', 'y'], [1, 2], [True, False])) print(tips_merge(['x'], [1, 2], [True, False])) print(tips_merge(['x'], [1, 2], [True, False], fill_value = '_'))
[['x', 1, True], ['y', 2, False]] [['x', 1, True], [None, 2, False]] [['x', 1, True], ['_', 2, False]]
