STRING MANIPULATION IN PYTHON:

- 1 answer

I have the following string :'Circa 54.000.000 risultati (0,54 secondi)'

i want to get only the second number(54.000.000) as a float(or int so i can use this value to determinate if it is higher than a given number).

result=wd.find_element_by_id('result-stats')
search=result.text.replace("risultati","")
search= search.replace("Circa", "")
search= search.replace("secondi","")

result is used to take the element from the html and by using .replace i manage to have the following string:'54.000.000 (0,54)'

From there how can i get 54.000.000 as a number?

You can use regex, first you need remove . and replace , to ..

import re 

s = 'Circa 54.000.000 risultati (0,54 secondi)'
s = s.replace(".","").replace(",",".")
# s = 'Circa 54000000 risultati (0.54 secondi)' 

a = re.findall(r'[0-9][0-9,.]+', s)
print(a)
# ['54000000', '0.54']
num = int(a[0])
# 54000000
