True/False formats as 1/0 in a fixed width string

Discussion in 'Python' started by Frank Millman, Mar 27, 2013.

  1. Hi all

    This is a bit of trivia, really, as I don't need a solution.

    But someone might need it one day, so it is worth mentioning.

    >>> '{}'.format(True)

    'True'
    >>> '{:<10}'.format(True)

    '1 '

    One might want to format True/False in a fixed width string, but it
    returns 1/0 instead. Is there any way to make this work?
