you can use string translate for this, which is shorter and faster
than using the loop.
_allchars = "".join([chr(x) for x in range(256)])
def remove(self, chars):
return self.translate(self._allchars, chars)
me = rstr('John Hunter')
Also, you don't need to define a separate __init__, since you are nor
overloading the str default.
