Describe your issue in detail here.

I can’t to get passed this point. I feel this step is asking to me to literally turn pattern into an under score charater which I did but I keep getting this error message: Your quote variable should be _ .

pattern = ‘_’
quote = ‘Not all those who wander are lost.’
print(re.findall(pattern, quote))

I also updated the code as the following but still no luck:
pattern = r’[_]’

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, r'\d'),
            (lowercase, r'[a-z]'),
            (uppercase, r'[A-Z]'),
            (special_chars, r'\W')

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

# User Editable Region

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

# User Editable Region

Hi @sonnyhot

The instruction:
Now turn your quote string into a single underscore character.

I see a string, I don’t see an underscore.

Happy coding

Ah, I knew it was something simple. I could have sworn there was another step that mentioned changing the quote variable but I change the pattern variable and it worked… It’s possible that the other step mentioned to update pattern to affect the quote in the print function…
