The regsub module
(Obsolete). This module provides string replacements, based on regular expressions. New code should use the re module’s replace function instead.
# File: regsub-example-1.py import regsub text = "Well, there's spam, egg, sausage and spam." print regsub.sub("spam", "ham", text) # just the first print regsub.gsub("spam", "bacon", text) # all of them
Well, there's ham, egg, sausage and spam. Well, there's bacon, egg, sausage and bacon.
