Let’s say you need to accept user input but without the white spaces. The
strip() method of the string object can be used to delete any white space characters from a string.
>>> s1 = ' Whitespace ' >>> s1 ' Whitespace ' >>> s2 = s1.strip() >>> s2 'Whitespace'
strip() method gets rid of any white space at the beginning and the end of a string.
You can strip unwanted white space only at the beginning or only at the end of a string.
>>> s1 = ' Whitespace ' >>> s2 = s1.lstrip() >>> s2 'Whitespace ' >>> s3 = s1.rstrip() >>> s3 ' Whitespace'
