This module provides a collection of utilities for working with pretty-printers.
PrettyPrinter (name, subprinters=None)
This class specifies the API that makes ‘info pretty-printer’, ‘enable pretty-printer’ and ‘disable pretty-printer’ work. Pretty-printers should generally inherit from this class.
For printers that handle multiple types, this class specifies the corresponding API for the subprinters.
Utility class for handling multiple printers, all recognized via regular expressions. See Writing a Pretty-Printer, for an example.
A pretty-printer which handles printing of
enum values. Unlike
enum printing, this printer attempts to
work properly when there is some overlap between the enumeration
constants. The argument name is the name of the printer and
also the name of the
enum type to look up.
register_pretty_printer (obj, printer, replace=False)
Register printer with the pretty-printer list of obj.
If replace is
True then any existing copy of the printer
is replaced. Otherwise a
RuntimeError exception is raised
if a printer with the same name already exists.
