split string
#1
Hi

I've a question about proper method to split a string.

my strings are like this:

object Host "serviceXXX-YYYY" {
I'm doing my plit like this:

hostname = line.split(" ")[2].split('"')[1]
Do you have a better method to do this split?
Thanks for your help

Alex

Alternatively you can do only one split:

>>> s = 'object Host "serviceXXX-YYYY" {'
>>> s.split('"', maxsplit=2)[1]                                                 
'serviceXXX-YYYY' 
I'm not 'in'-sane. Indeed, I am so far 'out' of sane that you appear a tiny blip on the distant coast of sanity. Bucky Katt, Get Fuzzy
