I have a list with elements as strings. I want to search if any of these element strings has two words of my interest. How can I ask re.compile to look for both words.
my words are 'good' and 'bad'.
pat = re.compile('good'+'bad')
a = ['Rama is a good boy','Raghu is a good boy','Sita is a good girl','Ravana is a bad boy','Duryodhan is a bad guy','good is an acceptable nature while bad is unwanted nature in a person']
I want to search instances of both 'bad' and 'good' in a string.
from the list 'a' above, I am expecting the result:
'good is an acceptable nature while bad is unwanted nature in a person'
how can I define my pattern using re.compile. I appreciate your help.
