Removing the last character from a string in Python

Learn, how to remove the last character from a string in Python.

We can remove the last character of a string by using the slice notation [ ] with :-1 as an argument.

Here is an example, that removes the last character u from the given string.

str = "How are you"

print(str[:-1])

Output:

"How are yo"

Similarly, we can also use the rstrip() method by passing the last character as an argument to it.

str = "How are you"

print(str.rstrip("u")); # "How are yo"

Another example of rstrip() method:

name = "justin"

print(name.rstrip("n")); # "justi"
