string.replace(existing_value, new_value, count)
s = “I love to code and sleep” x = s.replace(“sleep“, “eat“) print(x)
I love to code and eat
Here the word “sleep” in the string is replaced by the “eat”.
s = “I love to eat, eat, eat and eat” x = s.replace(“eat“, “code“, 3) print(x)
I love to code, code, code and eat
Here it particularly replaced first 3 occurrences of the word “eat” by “code”.
