Python: remove leading space from array of strings

Recommended Posts

It there a way, without a loop, to remove the leading whitespace from each element of an array of strings? TIA.

Like most languages, Python has map().    I'm not sure this is actually better than iterating, given that ltrim is a built in string method:

 

strings = ['  hi', '    there', 'friend']
print(strings)
strings = list(map(lambda str: str.lstrip(), strings))
print(strings)
