Looking to do multiple search and replaces

Looking to do multiple search and replaces

Looking to do multiple search and replaces

(OP)
I have a string which is over 400 characters long and theres a "?" and a newline after every 100 characters. I was wondering how can I replace multiple substrings( 100 chars long)  multiple times within a string. To put it another way, this is what i want to do.

string to find  ("abcdef") replace it with ("ffffff")
search again, string to find ("decfef") replace it with ("gggggg"). Thanks, any help would be appreciated.

RE: Looking to do multiple search and replaces

how about

CODE

replace_strings = {'abcdef': 'ffffff', 'decfef': 'gggggg'}

for key in replace_strings:
  data_string.replace(key, replace_strings[key])
