I search a text file for the word Offering with a regular expression. I then use the start and end points from that search to look down the column and pull the integers. Some instances (column A) have leading white-space I do not want. I want to print just the number (as would be found in Column B) into a file, no leading white-space. Regex in a regex? Conditional?
price = re.search(r'(^|\s)off(er(ing)?)?', line, re.I)
ps = price.start()
pe = price.end()
You could use
strip() to remove leading and trailing whitespaces:
In : ' 56.00 '.strip() Out: '56.00'
