Re: b64encode and unicode problem

Gabriel Rossetti skrev:
Hello everyone,

I am trying to encode a string using b4encode and I get the following
error :
>>b64encode(u"S alut Pierre, comment ça va?")
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/base64.py", line 53, in b64encode
encoded = binascii.b2a_ba se64(s)[:-1]
UnicodeEncodeEr ror: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe7' in
position 22: ordinal not in range(128)

If I remove the "u" infront of the string, it works. The problem is that
I in my program, the string is given to me un unicode/utf-8. I tried
several things, but I still get it, How can I get it to work, anybody
have any idea?
I have written about it here:

http://mxm-mad-science.blogspot.com/...school-of.html

The reason/solution for your problem is mentioned somewhere below the
middle.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
