I have a byte stream read over the internet:
responseByteStream = urllib.request.urlopen( httpRequest );
responseByteArray = responseByteStream.read();
The characters are encoded with unicode escape sequences, for example
a copyright symbol appears in the stream as the bytes:
5C 75 30 30 61 39
which translates to:
which is unicode for the copyright symbol.
I am simply trying to display this copyright symbol on a webpage, so
how do I encode the byte array to utf-8 given that it is 'escape
encoded' in the above way? I tried:
I am using Python 3.1.
