Method Details [hide private]

__format__(S, format_spec)

 
Return a formatted version of S as described by format_spec.
Returns: unicode
Overrides: object.__format__

__getattribute__(...)

 
x.__getattribute__('name') <==> x.name
Overrides: object.__getattribute__

__getslice__(x, i, j)
(Slicling operator)

 

x[i:j]

Use of negative indices is not supported.

__hash__(x)
(Hashing function)

 
hash(x)
Overrides: object.__hash__

__new__(T, S, ...)

 
Returns: a new object with type S, a subtype of T
Overrides: object.__new__

__repr__(x)
(Representation operator)

 
repr(x)
Overrides: object.__repr__

__sizeof__(S)

 
size of object in memory, in bytes
Returns: size of S in memory, in bytes
Overrides: object.__sizeof__

__str__(x)
(Informal representation operator)

 
str(x)
Overrides: object.__str__

capitalize(S)

 
Return a capitalized version of S, i.e. make the first character have upper case and the rest lower case.
Returns: unicode

center(S, width, fillchar=...)

 
Return S centered in a Unicode string of length width. Padding is done using the specified fill character (default is a space)
Returns: unicode

count(S, sub, start=..., end=...)

 
Return the number of non-overlapping occurrences of substring sub in Unicode string S[start:end]. Optional arguments start and end are interpreted as in slice notation.
Returns: int

decode(S, encoding=..., errors=...)

 
Decodes S using the codec registered for encoding. encoding defaults to the default encoding. errors may be given to set a different error handling scheme. Default is 'strict' meaning that encoding errors raise a UnicodeDecodeError. Other possible values are 'ignore' and 'replace' as well as any other name registerd with codecs.register_error that is able to handle UnicodeDecodeErrors.
Returns: string or unicode

encode(S, encoding=..., errors=...)

 
Encodes S using the codec registered for encoding. encoding defaults to the default encoding. errors may be given to set a different error handling scheme. Default is 'strict' meaning that encoding errors raise a UnicodeEncodeError. Other possible values are 'ignore', 'replace' and 'xmlcharrefreplace' as well as any other name registered with codecs.register_error that can handle UnicodeEncodeErrors.
Returns: string or unicode

endswith(S, suffix, start=..., end=...)

 
Return True if S ends with the specified suffix, False otherwise. With optional start, test S beginning at that position. With optional end, stop comparing S at that position. suffix can also be a tuple of strings to try.
Returns: bool

expandtabs(S, tabsize=...)

 
Return a copy of S where all tab characters are expanded using spaces. If tabsize is not given, a tab size of 8 characters is assumed.
Returns: unicode

find(S, sub, start=... , end=...)

 

Return the lowest index in S where substring sub is found, such that sub is contained within s[start:end]. Optional arguments start and end are interpreted as in slice notation.

Return -1 on failure.

Returns: int

format(S, *args, **kwargs)

 
Return a formatted version of S, using substitutions from args and kwargs. The substitutions are identified by braces ('{' and '}').
Returns: unicode

istitle(S)

 
Return True if S is a titlecased string and there is at least one character in S, i.e. upper- and titlecase characters may only follow uncased characters and lowercase characters only cased ones. Return False otherwise.
Returns: bool

join(S, iterable)

 
Return a string which is the concatenation of the strings in the iterable. The separator between elements is S.
Returns: unicode

ljust(S, width, fillchar=...)

 
Return S left-justified in a Unicode string of length width. Padding is done using the specified fill character (default is a space).
Returns: int

Return a copy of the string S with leading whitespace removed. If chars is given and not None, remove characters in chars instead. If chars is a str, it will be converted to unicode before stripping
Returns: unicode

Returns: (head, sep, tail)

rsplit(S, sep=... , maxsplit=...)
