The re.findall() helps to get a list of all matching patterns. It searches from start or end of the given string. If we use method findall to search for a pattern in a given string it will return all occurrences of the pattern. While searching a pattern, it is recommended to use re.findall() always, it works like re.search() and re.match() both.
import re result = re.search(r'TP', 'TP Tutorials Point TP') print result.group()
re.finditer(pattern, string, flags=0)
Return an iterator yielding MatchObject instances over all non-overlapping matches for the RE pattern in string. The string is scanned left-to-right, and matches are returned in the order found. Empty matches are included in the result.
The following code shows the use of re.finditer() method in Python regex
import re s1 = 'Blue Berries' pattern = 'Blue Berries' for match in re.finditer(pattern, s1): s = match.start() e = match.end() print 'String match "%s" at %d:%d' % (s1[s:e], s, e)
Strings match "Blue Berries" at 0:12
