In a response to one of my posts I was told 'string' is
obsolet. 'string' was enough for me, but if it is obsolet
then there should be a *new* way, isn't it? The *new*
way I was told to use is "str methods".
I tried that *new* way to do *old* 'string' job. Voila
the reason of my so pertinent question.

I am deeply sorry to have disturbed you in your python's heaven.

Next time I'll read all books available, all texts including
the python formal description before
posting, or perhaps it would be better and more simple if you
just ignore my posts.
