Series.str.rindex(sub, start: int = 0, end=None)#

Return highest indexes in each string in Series/Index.

Each of the returned indexes corresponds to the position where the substring is fully contained between [start:end]. This is the same as str.rfind except instead of returning -1, it raises a ValueError when the substring is not found. Equivalent to standard str.rindex.

  • sub (str) – Substring being searched.

  • start (int) – Left edge index.

  • end (int) – Right edge index.
