I was using the lstrip to trim the left occurance of a string, and it
didnt seem to work for some cases. but when i investigated there does
seem to be an issue with some combination of strings
here is one case
p1 = "abcd"
p2 = 'def' # $abc
sym = '_'
str1 = p1 + sym + p2
str1 = str1.lstrip(p1+sym)
print str1 # this prints ef instead of
can someone explain why this is happening ?
