I want to check the type of a variable so that I know which format to use
for printing eg
if type(a) == 'int':
print "a is an integer, value %i" % (a)
elif type(a) == 'float':
print "a is a float, value %f" % (a)
print "a is unknown type"
The comparison type(a) == 'int' etc does not work - I'm sure there's a
simple way to fix this but can't see it at the moment - any suggestions?
