Checking whether a string starts with XXXX


I would like to know how to check whether a string starts with "hello" in Python.

In Bash I usually do:

if [[ "$string" =~ ^hello ]]; then
 do something here
fi

How do I achieve the same in Python?


Solution

  • aString = "hello world"
    aString.startswith("hello")
