I want this program to read a text file then target and replace anything start with < and end with >
for example it finds <html>, replace that into ****
but somehow i tested it and it didn't work than i expected. any suggestions?
def remove_html(text): txtLIST = list(text) i = 0 while i < len(txtLIST): if txtLIST[i] == '<': while txtLIST[i] != '>': txtLIST.pop(i) txtLIST.pop(i) else: i = i + 1 replace = 4*'*' return replace.join(txtLIST) file = open('remHTML.txt','r') test = file display = remove_html(test) print display
