- Series.str.strip_chars(characters: IntoExprColumn | None = None) Series #
Remove leading and trailing characters.
The set of characters to be removed. All combinations of this set of characters will be stripped. If set to None (default), all whitespace is removed instead.
>>> s = pl.Series([" hello ", "\tworld"]) >>> s.str.strip_chars() shape: (2,) Series: '' [str] [ "hello" "world" ]
Characters can be stripped by passing a string as argument. Note that whitespace will not be stripped automatically when doing so, unless that whitespace is also included in the string.
>>> s.str.strip_chars("o ") shape: (2,) Series: '' [str] [ "hell" " world" ]
