regex – How can I find all matches to a regular expression in Python?

Use re.findall or re.finditer instead.

re.findall(pattern, string) returns a list of matching strings.

re.finditer(pattern, string) returns an iterator over MatchObject objects.

Example:

re.findall( rall (.*?) are, all cats are smarter than dogs, all dogs are dumber than cats)
# Output: [cats, dogs]

[x.group() for x in re.finditer( rall (.*?) are, all cats are smarter than dogs, all dogs are dumber than cats)]
# Output: [all cats are, all dogs are]
