Actually my problem is a little different. I have a .pem format file which
contain my public and private key both and i want to get only the public key
from that file as a string.

I already have done that by just parsing the said file but if there is some
direct way i will b glad to know.

@marco i don't have the string at all. Infact i want the string
@Toivonen i tried as_pem but it gives me some private key after doing some
thing with the file i pass to it as argument which is even not the private
key i have in my file. Also if i set cipher=None, even then its result is

Thanks by the way marco and Toivonen for trying to help :)
