https://docs.python.org/3.4/library/string.html does not explain the replace() function. I suppose it is very similar, if not identical, to 2.7: https://docs.python.org/2.7/library/string.html#string.replace

Follow the "String Methods" link at the top of the string module documentation. Or use this link:

https://docs.python.org/3.4/library/stdtypes.html#str.replace

See also help(str.replace) and help(str) in the interactive shell.

There is already a "see also: string methods" at the top of the page.

To clarify for the OP: in python3 the 'string' module does not contain a replace function, whereas in 2.7 it did.  'replace' is only a method on str in python3, whereas in 2.7 it is both an str method and a function in the string module.
