Python strip() multiple characters?

Because that’s not what strip() does. It removes leading and trailing characters that are present in the argument, but not those characters in the middle of the string.

You could do:

name= name.replace('(', '').replace(')', '').replace ...


name="".join(c for c in name if c not in '(){}<>')

or maybe use a regex:

import re
name= re.sub('[(){}<>]', '', name)
