StringAccessor.strip(to_strip=None, side='both')[source]#

Remove leading and trailing characters.

Strip whitespaces (including newlines) or a set of specified characters from each string in the array from left and/or right sides.

to_strip can either be a str or array-like of str. If array-like, it will be broadcast and applied elementwise.

Parameters:
  • to_strip (str or array-like of str or None, default: None) – Specifying the set of characters to be removed. All combinations of this set of characters will be stripped. If None then whitespaces are removed. If array-like, it is broadcast.

  • side ({"left", "right", "both"}, default: "both") – Side from which to strip.

Returns:

stripped (same type as values)
