Replace n with <br />
I’m parsing text from file with Python. I have to replace all newlines (n) with
cause this text will build html-content. For example, here is some line from file:
Now I do:
thatLine.replace('n', '<br />') print thatLine
And I still see the text with newline after it.
Just for kicks, you could also do
mytext = "<br />".join(mytext.split("n"))
to replace all newlines in a string with
thatLine = thatLine.replace('n', '<br />')
str.replace() returns a copy of the string, it doesn’t modify the string you pass in.
For some reason using python3 I had to escape the “”-sign
