Strip spaces/tabs/newlines - python

The Solution to Strip spaces/tabs/newlines - python is

Use str.split([sep[, maxsplit]]) with no sep or sep=None:

From docs:

If sep is not specified or is None, a different splitting algorithm is applied: runs of consecutive whitespace are regarded as a single separator, and the result will contain no empty strings at the start or end if the string has leading or trailing whitespace.


>>> myString.split()
['I', 'want', 'to', 'Remove', 'all', 'white', 'spaces,', 'new', 'lines', 'and', 'tabs']

Use str.join on the returned list to get this output:

>>> ' '.join(myString.split())
'I want to Remove all white spaces, new lines and tabs'
