Python | Remove substring list from String

Sometimes, while working with Python Strings, we can have problem in which we need to remove a substring from String. This is quite easy and many times solved before. But sometimes, we deal with list of strings that need to be removed and String adjusted accordingly. Lets discuss certain ways in which this task is achieved.

Method #1 : Using loop + replace()
The combination of above functions can be used to solve this problem. In this, we perform the replace of multiple Strings as they occur using replace().

# Python3 code to demonstrate working of 
# Remove substring list from String
# Using loop + replace()
  
# initializing string
test_str = "gfg is best for all geeks"
  
# printing original string
print("The original string is : " + test_str)
  
# initializing sub list 
sub_list = ["best", "all"]
  
# Remove substring list from String
# Using loop + replace()
for sub in sub_list:
    test_str = test_str.replace(' ' + sub + ' ', ' ')
  
# printing result 
print("The string after substring removal : " + test_str)

Output :

The original string is : gfg is best for all geeks
The string after substring removal : gfg is for geeks

 

Method #2 : Using replace() + join() + split()
The combination of above functions can be used to solve this problem. In this, we perform the task of handling single space using join() + split().

res = " ".join(test_str.split())
  
# printing result 
print("The string after substring removal : " + res)

The original string is : gfg is best for all geeks
The string after substring removal : gfg is for geeks
