Hello guys! Welcome back to another section of my tutorial on Python. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be discussing about the Python String Find() method.

The Python string find() method determines if string str occurs in a string, or in a substring of a string if the starting index beg and ending index end are given.

Syntax

The following below is the syntax for the Python String find() method -

str.find(str,  beg = 0,  end = len(string) )


Parameter Details

  • str - This specifies the string to be searched. 
  • beg - The is the starting index. By default its 0. 
  • end - This is the ending index. By default it is equal to the length of the string.

Return Value

Returns an index if found, otherwise -1.

Example

The following below is a simple example -

#!/usr/bin/python

str1 = "this is string example....wow!!!";
str2 = "exam";

print str1.find(str2)
print str1.find(str2, 10)
print str1.find(str2, 40)

Output
Below is the output of the above example -
