My UDP client is receiving responses from the server, and now I need to

"(0, ''),some data from the test system"
The tuple represents the error code and message. If the command had failed,
the response would look like this:
"(-1, 'Error message from the test system')"
I need to extract the tuple from the rest of the response string. I can do
this using eval, like so:
errtuple = eval(mytxt[:mytxt.find(')')+1])
Is there another, more specific method for transforming a sting into a
Thanks as always.
