3.20.1 PrettyPrinter Objects
PrettyPrinter instances have the following methods:
- pformat (object)
Return the formatted representation of object. This takes into
Account the options passed to the PrettyPrinter constructor.
- pprint (object)
Print the formatted representation of object on the configured
stream, followed by a newline.
The following methods provide the implementations for the
corresponding functions of the same names. Using these methods on an
instance is slightly more efficient since new PrettyPrinter
objects don't need to be created.
- isreadable (object)
Determine if the formatted representation of the object is
``readable,'' or can be used to reconstruct the value using
eval(). Note that this returns false for
recursive objects. If the depth parameter of the
PrettyPrinter is set and the object is deeper than allowed,
this returns false.
- isrecursive (object)
Determine if the object requires a recursive representation.
