Is unicode_escape broken?


I am confused by unicode_escape functionality - it doesn't seem to
follow string_escape functionality.

I would expect that given the same string (or at least a non-unicode
and unicode string appropriately) that they would produce more or less
the same output, but:
"\t\\t".encode( 'string_escape' ) '\\t\\\\t' u"\t\\t".encode ('unicode_escap e') '\\t\\t'

(I would have expected "\\t\\\\t" )

and then round - tripping also seems to be broken for unicode_escape: "\t\\t".encode( 'string_escape' ).decode('strin g_escape') '\t\\t' u"\t\\t".encode ('unicode_escap e').decode('uni code_escape')


Python Version "Python 2.4.2 (#67, Sep 28 2005, 12:41:11) [MSC v.1310
32 bit (Intel)] on win32"

I also believe this is a bug.

Here's an even shorter demonstration of the behavior:
u"\\".encode("u nicode_escape") .decode("unicod e_escape")

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
UnicodeDecodeEr ror: 'unicodeescape' codec can't decode byte 0x5c in
position 0: \ at end of string

Has anybody else encountered a problem when running your asp.net applications off your localhost and having broken image links? The weird thing is, the links aren't really broken.

I think the current version of _vsnwprintf_s is broken, in ordinary Windows. I'm not completely sure yet but it looks like this breakage is worse than previously known Windows CE breakage of StringCchPrintf. For Windows CE breakage of StringCchPrintf, since the %S format died instead of converting ANSI to Unicode, a workaround was to call MultiByteToWideChar and then use the %s format. For ordinary Windows breakage of _vsnwprintf_s,...

According to the Python docs, once an iterator raises StopIteration, it should continue to raise StopIteration forever. Iterators that fail to behave in this fashion are deemed to be "broken": http://docs.python.org/lib/typeiter.html I don't understand the reasoning behind this. As I understand it, an iterator is something like a stream. There's no constraint that once a stream is empty it must remain empty forever.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
