The re.search() method is similar to re.match() but it doesn’t limit us to find matches at the beginning of the string only.
import re result = re.search(r'Tutorials', 'TP Tutorials Point TP') print result.group()
Here you can see that, search() method is able to find a pattern from any position of the string.
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()
