I am not getting a same output!

This is my code:

print(re.findall(r""" \b[-\w]+ #Find a word boundary, 1+ hyphens or characters. \s #Find 1 whitespace [-\w ]+ #1+ hyphens and charactes and explicit spaces. [^\t\n] #Ignore tabs and newlines """, data, re.X))

and I get something weird! What is wrong with my code?

""", data, re.X))
