String Methods in Regex Find and Replace

I'm trying to convert between variable naming conventions, from: exampleVariable​ to: example_variable​ I can find the relevant variables with the regex search "([a-z])([A-Z])", and use "\1_\2" to convert to "example_Variable", but to convert to the desired convention using re.sub() would require something like: re.sub('([a-z])([A-Z])',lambda match: match.group(1)+"_"+match.group(2).lower(),'exampleVariable')​ However, simply placing the inline function in Wing's replace line doesn't achieve the desired effect. Is there an alternative way to accomplish what I'm looking to do?
