strip() in-built function of Python is used to remove all the leading and trailing spaces from a string.
remove (optional): Character or a set of characters, that needs to be removed from the string.
The function can take one or no parameter. If no parameter is passed then only the leading and trailing spaces are removed.
Return Values :
The function returns another string with both leading and trailing characters being stripped off.
When the removed string matches perfectly then the modified string is returned with removed characters and spaces. When the remove string does not match then no modification is made to the original string.
The below code displays the working of strip() in various conditions.
