Hmm -- made me want to check it out.
But why doesn't this work:
>>> print u'\u4378'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
UnicodeError: ASCII encoding error: ordinal not in range(128)
This does (I did a little poking around the docs after the above):
>>> print u"\u2122".encode('utf-8')
Hmm. Why do I need to do that? Is there no way to figure out how to print a
unicode string when I'm running in a unicode capable terminal? Also, is
there a list somewhere of what the "".encode() method understands? I was
unable to find one. I just guessed that "utf-8" would work from the above
example. Is that extendable in Python, or is it compiled-in?
This is what I've seen on this so far:
The last one does have a way to register new codecs in the codecs module --
can the string method use any codec defined there? If so, how do you use
