I have a data frame and I want to delete rows that in the column "Phrase", pattern "___" exists.
|0||proposed by the president of the||1|
|2||"Murder, ___ Wrote"||0|
But Imagin that the data fram has 2,000,000 enteries
import re df_clean = pd.DataFrame() z = 0 y = 0 for i in df_original["PHRASE"]: x = re.search("___", i) if x: y = y + 1 else: df_clean.append([i]) z = z + 1 this is what I came up with so far, I know it's not right, Does anyone know the answer? (by the way append takes a lot of time)
~ symbol negates the operation.
