How to Split Chinese Character with backslash representation?

Thanks but my intention is to strictly use regex.
Since there are separator I need to include as delimiter
Especially for the case like this:


>>> str = '\xc5\xeb\xc7\xd5\xbc--FOO--BAR'
>>> field = list(str)
>>> print field
['\xc5', '\xeb', '\xc7', '\xd5', '\xbc', '-', '-', 'F', 'O', 'O', '-', '-', 'B', 'A', 'R']


What we want as the output is this instead:
['\xc5', '\xeb', '\xc7', '\xd5', '\xbc','FOO','BAR]


What's the best way to do it?

Depends on what you want to do with them:

 >>> string = '\xc5\xeb\xc7\xd5\xbc'
 >>> for char in string:
         print char


Å
ë
Ç
Õ
¼
 >>> list_of_characters = list(string)
 >>> list_of_characters
['\xc5', '\xeb', '\xc7', '\xd5', '\xbc']
 >>> for char in string:
         char


'\xc5'
'\xeb'
'\xc7'
'\xd5'
'\xbc'
 >>> for char in list_of_characters:
         print char


Å
ë
Ç
Õ
¼
 >>> string[3]
'\xd5'
 >>> string[1:3]
'\xeb\xc7'

Basically, you characters are already separated into a list of
characters, that's effectively what a string is (but with a few more
methods applicable only to lists of characters, not to other lists).
