The following is a sample of my problem. I get input from user and
store it in variable 'b'. I want to match the user input with the
contents of another variable 'a'. However I m not able to get the
exact match. Could someone help?

>>> print a

>>> b

In the above example I want re to find the string 'c+' instead of 'c'.
I want a solution without escaping the '+' symbol with backslash
because it is given by the user.
