In this article, we would like to show you how to conditionally remove the first character from the string in Python.
text = "ABC" if text == "A": text = text[1:] print("after: ", text) # after: BC
In this example, we check if the first character in a string is
C and remove it if true.
text = "ABC" print("String before:", text) # remove first character from a string if condition if text == "A": text = text[1:] print("String after: ", text)
String before: ABC String after: BC
