This simple code that simply tries to replace semicolons (at i-specified positions) by colons does not work:
for i in range(0,len(line)):
if (line[i]==";" and i in rightindexarray):
It gives the error
TypeError: 'str' object does not support item assignment
How can I work around this to replace the semicolons by colons? Using replace does not work as that function takes no index- there might be some semicolons I do not want to replace.
In the string, I might have any number of semicolons, eg "Hei der!; Hello there;!;"
I know which ones I want to replace (I have their index in the string). Using replace does not work as I'm not able to use an index with it.
