String Manipulation in Python

Splitting the LinesSplitting the Lines

If we are working with text, most likely it will contain more than 1 line. And it would be great if we could split such string into lines.

One way to do it is to use .split method from the previous chapter with escape character \n as an argument (this one makes a line break). But Python provides us with a special function, that makes it - .splitlines. This function has only one optional argument keeplinebreaks (bool) that specifies if the line breaks should be included (if True), or shouldn't (if False, by default).


Given multiline string zen with the first 6 principles The Zen of Python, by Tim Peters. Split this string by lines (without printing the escape characters).
