And it's almost certainly a completely separate problem from this one, so you should probably create a new question. So, the question: Is there a nicer solution that makes my code agnostic from the output interface encoding? Sign up for a free GitHub account to open an issue and contact its maintainers and the community. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to fix it other than to go through your code fixing all the spots. So there you have it. However, unlike a similar issue with while encoding, there would be not ambiguity if decode simply returned the unicode argument unmodified. At any step of the way, if you assign a unicode to a str, you'll see the dreaded ascii codec can't encode. I even removed a line in the log file, but the error occurs in the next line.
The field in the database is of type text and the contains a html formated text. You'll have to use some other program to view its contents. Since cp1252 seems to be the wrong encoding, try opening it as utf-8 or latin1 and see if that fixes it. If you are just looking at the file as a sequence of bytes, open the file in binary mode rather than text. I suggested utf-8 and latin1 because those are the most likely candidates for his file since cp1252 was already excluded. Hence a decoding failure inside an encoder. Any ideas on how to correct that or why that happens? To post to this group, send email to.
Sekretesspolicy Var god svara inte på detta meddelande. Sorry, I read through your post too fast. The part you do have to worry about is what codecs are supported by whatever program you use to view the output. That way, you'll avoid this issue all together just make sure you use byte strings instead of unicode strings. Unlike a similar case with , such a failure cannot be always avoided.
So you need to do codecs. Note again: using a utf-8 encoding to store regular ascii is not a problem, since it's upward compatible, so if your text does not contain non-ascii unicode characters, the utf-8 encoded file is identical to a regular ascii file. Det är lätt som en plätt att komma igång. There are several things I do not like from my solution. This should only be used in text mode.
The thing that tripped me up was that doing these two things is not good enough. If you want to read the file as text, find out which encoding it actually is. I have a bunch of these json files which Im parsing. UnicodeDecodeError last edited 2008-11-15 13:59:56 by localhost. Mostly for debugging process I am getting the page result and displaying it on the screen using print function.
I just transferred the file to my mac to try it there and it runs perfectly! Since codings map only a limited number of str strings to unicode characters, an illegal sequence of str characters will cause the coding-specific decode to fail. The UnicodeDecodeError normally happens when decoding an str string from a certain coding. This should only be used in text mode. This solved my problem on Windows. Is good enough for many purposes. Is this the 'proper' way to handle this? It's insane to have to switch code pages, and there will eventually be text you want to print that has characters that can't be represented by any code page, or which requires two mutually exclusive code pages. Mail —Villkor för användning Yahoo! On my machine, I get sys.
Ancoris reserves the right to monitor all e-mail communications through its networks. For the Python 2 solution, we'd need to add a from io import open to make this work still in Python 2 still:. I wasn't thinking of it like the web browsers use it. I say that the cp1252. Note: utf-8 is upwards compatible with ascii, so a file that was stored using regular ascii will open fine using utf-8 encoding. Maybe a little late to reply.
A second, and better option would be to output the text to a file and then use some program to view that file. That way, you'll avoid this issue all together just make sure you use byte strings instead of unicode strings. The cause of it seems to be the coding-specific decode functions that normally expect a parameter of type str. I wasn't thinking of it like the web browsers use it. His file looks like a source code file. Your Pycharm settings most likely tells it to use 'utf-8', whereas your command terminal defaults to a code page. By now, obviously you'll have realized that unless you open fileout.
There is a weird character in the data I am scraping 'u200b' and even though I thought I'd stripped it on line 16 it's still flagging the error. Encoding from unicode to str. Can you please help me how to solve with pandas as well. Can someone point out where I've gone wrong? I think it uses locale. However, a more flexible treatment of the unexpected str argument type might first validate the str argument by decoding it, then return it unmodified if the validation was successful. What is the process like for that? That way, you'll avoid this issue all together just make sure you use byte strings instead of unicode strings. Where did you copy and paste that error from? By default, Windows does not use 'utf-8', it uses 'code pages'.
Not the ideal case a hyphen should be a better replacement but good enough for my purpose. Under the hypothesis that he is accidentally or otherwise reading somebody else's source files as data, it could be any encoding. Have a question about this project? In one of those encodings, you'll probably see some nonsense characters. In that case, you probably want to follow up at superuser. These code pages are based on standards created prior to the currently accepted 'utf-8' which is a subset of Unicode.
