The problem is that there are several different sets of characters I want to remove. So I created a tuple, but I can't find a way to get str.replace() to iterate through it.
I've tried the following.
the vars are as follows:
Replace is the whitespace character I want to convert the other characters too.
Remove is a tuple containing the character sequences I want to remove.
Test is a string with the file data.
map(test.replace,remove) #TypeError: too few arguments map(test.replace,remove, replace) #ditto: expected a character buffer object test.replace(remove, " ") #ditto:ditto map(test.replace(remove," "),range(len(remove))) #ditto:ditto map(replace(remove," "),test) #Strings object is not callable
I'm using " " as my replace char mainly to check if the function had worked.
So, anyone care to point me in the right direction on str.replace() or explain why str.strip() is doing nothing?
