When it is required to take a string and replace every blank space with a hyphen, the ‘replace’ method can be used. It takes two parameters, the blank space, and the value with which it needs to be replaced (hyphen in this case).
Below is a demonstration of the same −
my_string = input("Enter a string :") print("The string entered by user is :") print(my_string) my_string = my_string.replace(' ','-') print("The modified string:") print(my_string)
Enter a string : A-B-C-D E- A-B-C-D E- The string entered by user is : A-B-C-D E- The modified string: A-B-C-D--E-
An input string is asked to be entered by the user.
It is done with the help of the ‘input’ method.
The string entered by the user is displayed on the console.
The ‘replace’ method is used to replace an empty space with a hyphen.
The changed string is then displayed on the console.
