We're back after a server migration that caused effbot.org to fall over a bit harder than expected. Expect some glitches.

The pprint module

This module is a “pretty printer” for Python data structures. It’s useful if you have to print non-trivial data structures to the console.

Example: Using the pprint module
# File: pprint-example-1.py

import pprint

data = (
    "this is a string", [1, 2, 3, 4], ("more tuples",
    1.0, 2.3, 4.5), "this is yet another string"


('this is a string',
 [1, 2, 3, 4],
 ('more tuples', 1.0, 2.3, 4.5),
 'this is yet another string')
