lowercase u before string in "python for windows"

why does this occur when using the python windows extensions? all
string are prefixed by a lowercase "u".
is there a newsgroup explicitly for python windows extensions?

example of output below.

SMBIOSBIOSVersi on:u'A16'
SMBIOSMajorVers ion:2
SMBIOSMinorVers ion:3
SMBIOSPresent:T rue
SoftwareElement ID:u'Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A16'
SoftwareElement State:3
TargetOperating System:0
here is a snippet of the code:

if objItem.Status != None:
print "Status:" + ` objItem.Status`
if objItem.TargetO peratingSystem != None:
print "TargetOperatin gSystem:" + `
objItem.TargetO peratingSystem`
if objItem.Version != None:
print "Version:" + ` objItem.Version `

They are Unicode strings:

There's nothing Windows specific about this - it just means that you
have unicode strings. See

There is a PyWin32 user's group:


The maintainer of the project is a regular contributor to the list as
are a number of other very knowledgeable Windows guys.

The term "mock filesystem" refers to code allowing unit or acceptance tests to create, read and write, and manipulate in other ways "virtual" files, without any actual disk access. Everything is held in memory and therefore fast, without risk of damaging real files, and with none of the messiness of leftover files after testing. Googling the archives and the web suggests that only I and Remy Blank have done much along these lines. I...

Greetings. I'm reading "How to think like a computer scientist: Learning with Python" and there's a question regarding string operations. The question is, "Can you think of a property that addition and multiplication have that string concatenation and repetition do not?" I thought it was the commutative property but "<string>"*3 is equivalent to 3*"<string>". Any ideas?

Hello, Let me start by saying that I am coming from a background using Matlab (or Octave), and C++.

In C++, I open up an editor in one window, a Unix shell in another. I write the code in the editor, then switch to the shell window for compile...

Short description: Using a wxPython based app, I would like to take a python script in an editor window, invoke the python interpreter and use another window as stdin/stdout/stderr. Based on what I've read so far, I've figured that I need to do something like: f_in, f_out = popen4("python -u script.py") where I have extracted the text from the editor and put it in "script.py". (However, see below).

Python is a good programming language, but "Python" is not a good name. First, python also means snake, Monty Python. If we search "python" in google, emule, many results are not programming resource. If we search PHP, all results are programming resource. Second, python also means snake, snake is not a good thing in western culture. Many people dislike any things relevant to snake. We must have high regard for the custom.

Hi, Is there some way to get a list of "impure" Python modules/extensions from PyPI? I know the mySQL module is a good example, but I am working on creating some decent instructions on how to create Windows installers from impure modules and am having a hard time finding them. Thanks! Mike

After a couple of weeks studying Python, I already have a few useful scripts, including one that downloads 1500 Yahoo stock quotes in 6 seconds. However, many things are puzzling to me. I keep on seeing things like "__main__" in scripts. A more obscure example would be "__add__" used in string concatenation. For example, I can use "Hello "+"world (or just "Hello" "world") to join those two words. But I can also use "Hello...
