The repr module provides a means for producing object
representations with limits on the size of the resulting strings.
This is used in the Python debugger and may be useful in other
contexts as well.
This module provides a class, an instance, and a function:
- Repr ()
Class which provides formatting services useful in implementing
functions similar to the built-in repr(); size limits for
different object types are added to avoid the generation of
representations which are excessively long.
This is an instance of Repr which is used to provide the
repr() function described below. Changing the attributes
of this object will affect the size limits used by repr()
and the Python debugger.
- repr (obj)
This is the repr() method of
aRepr. It returns a
string similar to that returned by the built-in function of the same
name, but with limits on most sizes.
