Given a string and a substring, the task is to replace all occurrences of the substring with space. We also need to remove trailing and leading spaces created due to this.
Input: str = “LIELIEILIEAMLIECOOL”, sub = “LIE”
Output: I AM COOL
By replacing all occurrences of Sub in Str with empty spaces, we extract the secret message as I AM COOL.
Input: str = “XYZAXYZBXYZC”, sub = “XYZ”
By replacing all occurrences of Sub in Str with empty spaces, we extract the secret message as ABC.
- In the given string Str, replace all occurrences of Sub with empty spaces.
- Remove unwanted empty spaces in start and end of the string.
- Print the modified string.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
# Python3 implementation to extract
# the secret message
# Function to extract the secret message
def extractSecretMessage(Str, Sub):
# Replacing all occurrences of
# Sub in Str by empty spaces
Str= Str.replace(Sub, ” “)
# Removing unwanted spaces in the
# start and end of the string
# Driver code
Str = “LIELIEILIEAMLIECOOL”
Sub = “LIE”
