hello : i am very much a python novice because
I only use it for preprocessing data that
i send into another language called Splus.
 
I have the following problem that
I have spent a lot of time on but I
can't figure out.
 
I have a string called tickerstring
that might be 
 
"ANL LN32"
 
and i want to get rid of the digit piece.
so that i get "ANL LN"
 
i can't just take off the last two charcters
because the string could also be
 
"ANL LN3" for example.
 
thanks to anyone who could explain
how to do this ?
 
                                    mark
