Hi Shi Mu,
Without more context, I'd have to guess that this looks like a format
string. Here's more information about them:
But can you show us where you saw this "%25f" thing though? Like bytes,
words can be "interpreted" in different ways. Offhand, another
alternative interpretation is as a url-escaped string:
>>> import urllib
>>> urllib.quote_plus('hello world, this is a percent: %')
So if you can tell us where you saw '%25f', that'll help us cut down on
the possible explanations that can better account for what you're seeing.
