I noticed a smaal documentation bug in python 2.7 documentation at

    7.1. Fancier Output Formatting¶

in the first example :

>>>  # The repr() of a string adds string quotes and backslashes:
...hello  =  'hello, world\n'
>>>  hellos  =  repr(hello)
>>>  print  hellos
'hello, world\n'

So the last line I quoted here must be "'hello, world\\n'" as explained 
in the first line .

have a good day
