Python 2.7.1 I am trying to use python regular expression to extract words inside of a pattern
I have some string that looks like this
someline abc someother line name my_user_name is valid some more lines
I want to extract the word "my_user_name". I do something like
import re s = #that big string p = re.compile("name .* is valid", re.flags) p.match(s) #this gives me <_sre.SRE_Match object at 0x026B6838>
How do I extract my_user_name now?
