Is It Bug?

Why this is not working.

>>> 'Hello, \\\\World'.replace('\\', '\\')

To me, Python will interpret '\\\\' to '\\'. And the replace method will replace '\\' with '\'. So, the result will be 'Hello, \World'. But it's give me 'Hello, \\\\World'.

The result I want form the code is 'Hello, \World'.
