Given a string and a character, write a Python program to replace multiple occurrences of the given character by a single character.
Input : Geeksforgeeks, ch = 'e' Output : Geksforgeks Input : Wiiiin, ch = 'i' Output : Win
Approach #1 : Naive Approach
This method is a brute force approach in which we take another list ‘new_str’. Use a for loop to check if the given character is repeated or not. If repeated multiple times, append the character single time to the list. Other characters(Not the given character) are simply appended to the list without any alteration.
Approach #2 : Using Python Regex
- Python | Split string on Kth Occurrence of Character
- Python program to find occurrence to each character in given string
- Print Single and Multiple variable in Python
- Python | Replace multiple characters at once
- Python | Convert a list of multiple integers into a single integer
- Generate two output strings depending upon occurrence of character in input string in Python
- replace() in Python to replace a substring
- Python | Pandas Series.str.replace() to replace text in a series
- Python | Insert character after every character pair
- Python | Split on last occurrence of delimiter
- Python | Last occurrence of some element in a list
- Python | Find last occurrence of substring
- Python | Percentage occurrence at index
- Python | Get the string after occurrence of given substring
- Python | Add the occurrence of each number as sublists
