Python: Split a string with multiple delimiters

Python Regular Expression: Exercise-47 with Solution

Write a Python program to split a string with multiple delimiters.

Note : A delimiter is a sequence of one or more characters used to specify the boundary between separate, independent regions in plain text or other data streams. An example of a delimiter is the comma character, which acts as a field delimiter in a sequence of comma-separated values.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

import re
text = 'The quick brown\nfox jumps*over the lazy dog.'
print(re.split('; |, |\*|\n',text))

Sample Output:

['The quick brown', 'fox jumps', 'over the lazy dog.']
