No. The capability when properly accepts arbitrary Python data.
Usage is a little non-intuitive. I bet Sunit's error is in calling the
function factory rather than the generated pretty printer.
pp = pprint.PrettyPrinter(indent=4) # create a printer function
pp.pprint( sXml ) # use the created function on data
That should "pretty print" your string.
However, since it's just a string, I'm not sure it'll be much prettier
than with just print.
You also don't say what you really expect.
I'm guessing but the following might help:
Or probably you want to pretty print your XML.
I have no idea how to do that.
