How to wrap a Japanese text in Python


Hi All,

I am trying to wrap a japanese text in Python, by the following code.

if len(message) > 54:
   message = message.decode("UTF8")
   strlist = textwrap.wrap(message,54)

After this I am wirting it to you a CAD Software window. While
displaying in this window some Japanese characters at the end of the
line & some at the begining of the line are not displayed at all.
Meaning the text wrapping is not happening correctly.

Can any body please help me out in resolving this problem.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Prashant

First of all you should move message.decode('utf-8') call out of "if"
and you don't need "if" anyway because if the line is less than 54
textwrap won't touch it:

message = message.decode('utf-8')
strlist = textwrap.wrap(message, 54)

I don't know Japanese but the following example *seems* to work fine
for me:

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
sample=u"""                      
                         """

import textwrap
for line in textwrap.wrap(sample, 6):
    print line
--------------------------------
Result:

Can you post a short example that clearly demonstrates the problem?

Oh, my. IE7 and/or Google groups ate my Japanese text :(  But I hope
you've got the idea: try to work on a small example python program
in a unicode-friendly IDE like for example IDLE.

This question is still valid.
