[SOLVED] python re.split function, how do I return the full character set?


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by Remixt

I’m trying to use a regex pattern split this string into chunks seperated by any character.

s = a12b56c1
import re

This prints ['', '12', '56', '1']

How do I use the split function to have it output the whole string, delimited by any character? IE ['a12', 'b56', 'c1']


Try to use re.findall instead re.split (regex101):

s = "a12b56c1"
import re

print(re.findall(r"\D+\d+", s))


['a12', 'b56', 'c1']
