char.rpartition(a, sep)[source]#

Partition (split) each element around the right-most separator.

Calls str.rpartition element-wise.

For each element in a, split the element as the last occurrence of sep, and return 3 strings containing the part before the separator, the separator itself, and the part after the separator. If the separator is not found, return 3 strings containing the string itself, followed by two empty strings.
