Example 2: Giving no arguments

If we give no arguments to the strip() method, the leading and trailing whitespaces will be stripped.

str = " database is good! ";



database is good!

Example 3: Case sensitive

The string.strip() method is case-sensitive. When we pass a character argument to the method, it will not strip the same character with a different case.

str = "hey, this is bart simpson, the coolest Simpson";



hey, this is bart simpson, the coolest S

That’s it.
