How to remove new line feeds `\n` from strings in Python

The new line feeds can be of the form \n or \r or both. We can remove them from a string using the strip() method.

'this is a string\n'.strip()

And we get:

'this is a string'

Note that there is also the lstrip() and rstrip() for left and right stripping of the whitespaces in text. We can also be more specific by typing:

'this is a string\n'.strip("\n")

Or you can use the replace function. Assume that the input_text has new line feeds in the middle of the string. We can clean them as follows:

input_txt = input_txt.replace('\n',' ')
