I want my program to be able to recognise whole words from a combination of letters in my program. Below is my code:
text = raw_input("Please enter text: ") word = raw_input("Word to be censored: ") text = text.lower() word = word.lower() def censor(text, word): print(text.replace(word, '*' * len(word))) censor(text, word)
This works fine, for example, entering
My name is Robbie in the
text prompt, and
Robbie in the
word prompt, will
My name is ******.
However, using two words that contain the same letter combination and order produces an odd result. For instance, using
Country count and the
count, it will output this:
*****ry *****. Is there a way I can stop this from happening?
Also, I would like to know if it is possible to have more than one word censored, but still using the
raw_input technique. I'd prefer it this way as it allows the user to choose what is censored, as opposed to having to modify the arguments in the function when it is called.
