In this tutorial, we will learn how to extract dates and times from raw strings. Extracting helpful information like dates is very useful while parsing raw texts such as logs. You can also use an IDE for writing the code. Here, I am using the open-source VS Code IDE provided by Microsoft. VS Code is a cross-platform IDE. We can use it on any platform like Windows, Linux, or macOS.
Strings are one of the most important data types in any programming language. They are used for storing text like names of persons, places, etc. In Python, strings can be created by writing them under triple quotes, double quotes, or single quotes. Unlike C++, strings in Python can also be written under single quotes. Python also supports Multiline strings that can be written by enclosing text in triple quotes.
