Learn Regular Expressions by Building a Password Generator - Step 42

Tell us what’s happening:

I try to modify pattern to match the entire string. then use a . followed by the + quantifier. But it was error

Your code so far

Here is my python code:

import re
import secrets
import string


def generate_password(length, nums, special_chars, uppercase, lowercase):
    # Define the possible characters for the password
    letters = string.ascii_letters
    digits = string.digits
    symbols = string.punctuation

    # Combine all characters
    all_characters = letters + digits + symbols

    while True:
        password = ''
        # Generate password
        for _ in range(length):
            password += secrets.choice(all_characters)
        
        constraints = [
            (nums, '[0-9]'),
            (lowercase, '[a-z]'),
            (uppercase, '[A-Z]'),
            (special_chars, '')
        ]        

    return password
    
# new_password = generate_password(8)
# print(new_password)

/* User Editable Region */

pattern = '.+t.'
quote = 'Not all those who wander are lost.'
print(re.findall(pattern, quote))

/* User Editable Region */

My output is: ['Not all those who wander are lost.']

that’s more than only a . followed by a + !!!

did you got it working :thinking:

Thank you.

yes i have tried it but not able to pass the test case

pattern = '[^a].+'
quote = 'Not all those who wander are lost.'
print(re.findall(pattern, quote))

output: [‘Not all those who wander are lost.’]

So instead of creating a new thread i thought to continue on same thread
