How to Remove Punctuation from Paragraph in Python

In this tutorial, we will create a "How to Remove Punctuation from Paragraph in Python". We will cover the basics of creating this program for removing punctuation from a paragraph. Our goal is to understand the concept behind this program and learn the basics of how it's done. I will provide a sample program to demonstrate the actual coding of this tutorial.

This topic is simple and easy to understand; just follow the instructions I provide, and you can also do it yourself with ease. The program I will show you is how to remove punctuation from a paragraph. I will do my best to provide you with the easiest method of creating this program, called "Remove Punctuation from Paragraph". So, let's start with the coding.

Getting Started:

First you will have to download & install the Python IDLE's, here's the link for the Integrated Development And Learning Environment for Python

Creating Main Function

This is the main function of the application. The following code will display a simple GUI in terminal console of removing punctuation from paragraph. To do this, simply copy and paste these blocks of code into the IDLE text editor.
  1. while True:
  4. punctuations = '''!()-[]{};:'"\,<>./?@#$%^&*_~'''
  6. ret=False
  9. print("\n\n================= Remove Punctuation from Paragraph =================\n\n")
  11. my_str = input("Enter a paragraph: ")
  14. no_punct = ""
  15. for char in my_str:
  16. if char not in punctuations:
  17. no_punct = no_punct + char
  20. print(no_punct)
  24. user_input=input("\n\nTry again? (Yes/No): ")
  25. print("\n\n")
  26. if user_input.lower()=='no':
  27. print("Exit program.")
  28. break
  30. elif user_input.lower()=='yes':
  31. ret=True
  33. else:
  34. print("Wrong input.")
  35. ret=True
  38. if ret:
  39. continue

In the provided code, the first step is to enclose the entire code with a while loop to ensure the continuation of the application. Then, we set a variable containing some regex symbols to be handled.

Lastly, we use a for loop to read the entire paragraph provided and employ a conditional statement to track punctuation and remove it.
