Parse provides the reverse function for format(), Python3 package


Parse strings using a specification based on the Python format() syntax.

   ``parse()`` is the opposite of ``format()``

The module is set up to only export ``parse()``, ``search()`` and ``findall()`` when ``import *`` is used:

>>> from parse import *

From there it's a simple thing to parse a string:

>>> parse("It's {}, I love it!", "It's spam, I love it!") <Result ('spam',) {}> >>> _[0] 'spam'

Or to search a string for some pattern:

>>> search('Age: {:d}\n', 'Name: Rufus\nAge: 42\nColor: red\n') <Result (42,) {}>

This is the Python 3 package
