The pprint Module

The pprint module, shown in Example 4-16, is a "pretty printer" for Python data structures. It's useful if you have to print non-trivial data structures to the console.

Example 4-16. Using the pprint Module

File: pprint-example-1.py

import pprint

data = (
 "this is a string", [1, 2, 3, 4], ("more tuples",
 1.0, 2.3, 4.5), "this is yet another string"
 )

pprint.pprint(data)

('this is a string',
 [1, 2, 3, 4],
 ('more tuples', 1.0, 2.3, 4.5),
 'this is yet another string')
