Learn Regular Expressions by Building a Password Generator - Step 42

Tell us what’s happening:

In the console it’s showing the required string,but still it’s showing the issues.

Your code so far

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

# User Editable Region

Hi @kiranfeb05

The dot character is a wildcard that matches any character in a string — except for a newline character by default. Modify pattern to match the entire string. Use a . followed by the + quantifier.

The instructions are asking you to modify the pattern variable.
Hint: ‘entire string’

Happy coding
