ak.str.trim_whitespace(array, *, highlevel=True, behavior=None)#

Removes any leading or trailing whitespace from any string or bytestring-valued data.

Note: this function does not raise an error if the array does not contain any string or bytestring data.

Requires the pyarrow library and calls pyarrow.compute.utf8_trim_whitespace or pyarrow.compute.ascii_trim_whitespace on strings and bytestrings, respectively.
