tuple __repr__ non-ascii characters


Y

Yaþar Arabacý

Hi,

while this:

a = "yaþar"
print a

prints "yaþar"

this:

a = ("yaþar",)
print a

prints ('ya\xfear',)

At first I tried decoding repr(a) with different encodings, but later
I realised there is actually 4 charaters \, x, f and e in return value
of repr.

Therefore, I wrote this:

def byte_replacement(bstring):
return chr(int(bstring[2:],16))

def prettyprint(obj):
text = repr(obj)
while True:
try:
start = text.index("\\x")
text = text[:start] +
byte_replacement(text[start:start+4]) + text[start+4:]
except ValueError:
break
print text

Is there a better way to handle this problem?
