Python 2.1 (#15, Apr 16 2001, 18:25:49) [MSC 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
>>> x = 12345678901L
>>> str(x)
'12345678901'
>>> repr(x)
'12345678901L'
>>> "%d" % x
'12345678901'
>>>
In version 1.5.2, the %d example causes an exception "Overflow Error:
long int too long to convert" --- obviously a bug that has been fixed.
Before version 1.6, str() acted like repr(). If indeed you are using
version 1.x, you may want to consider upgrading.
