SyntaxError of Non-ASCII character
I am trying to parse xml which contains the some non ASCII cheracter,
the code looks like below
from lxml import etree from lxml import objectify content = u'<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><div>Order date : 05/08/2013 12:24:28</div>' mail.replace('\xa0',' ') xml = etree.fromstring(mail)
but it shows me error on the line 'content = ...' like
syntaxError: Non-ASCII character '\xc2' in file /home/projects/ztest/responce.py on line 3, but no encoding declared; see http://www.python.org/peps/pep-0263.html for details
in the terminal it's working but while running on the eclipse IDE it's giving me a error.
Don't know how to overcome..
You should define source code encoding, add this to the top of your script:
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
The reason why it works differently in console and in the IDE is, likely, because of different default encodings set. You can check it by running:
import sys print sys.getdefaultencoding()
- Why declare unicode by string in python?
- Changing default encoding of Python?
- Correct way to define Python source code encoding
