I want to find words that appear after a keyword (specified and searched by me) and print out the result. I know that i am suppose to use regex to do it, and i tried it out too, like this:
import re s = "hi my name is ryan, and i am new to python and would like to learn more" m = re.search("^name: (\w+)", s) print m.groups()
The output is just:
But I want to get all the words and punctuations that comes after the word "name".
Instead of using regexes you could just (for example) separate your string with
str.partition(separator) like this:
mystring = "hi my name is ryan, and i am new to python and would like to learn more" keyword = 'name' before_keyword, keyword, after_keyword = mystring.partition(keyword) >>> before_keyword 'hi my ' >>> keyword 'name' >>> after_keyword ' is ryan, and i am new to python and would like to learn more'
You have to deal with the needless whitespaces separately, though.
