Fedora Update Notification
2011-03-11 20:24:29

Name        : python-unicodenazi
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     : 1.1
Release     : 1.fc14
URL         : http://pypi.python.org/pypi/unicode-nazi
Summary     : Module that finds unicode/bytestring comparisons and other problems
Description :
A common source of unicode issues in python2 is that code mixes str and unicode
and is valid for the cases the author tests for (because they only test with
ASCII) but then throws an error when the code is used with non-ASCII strings.

If enabled unicodenazi will complain when this mixing of unicode and byte str
occurs.  It's annoying as hell, has a huge runtime impact on performance, and
will also complain about most of the stuff in the Python standard library.  But
it will point out some areas of your code that may traceback in python2 when
given different data and make it easier to migrate to python3 where unicode and
bytes no longer interoperate.


This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update python-unicodenazi' at the command line.
