Learning (and needing it) Unicode, in Dive Into Python found the
sys.setedefaultencoding() method. Very nice, but in the documentation of the
2.2.1 version, says that this method is new in 2.0 version.
I've got installed Python 2.1.1 and when I do dir(sys), don't get that
method!! Strange. And ugly,
So, two questions:
- Why this happens?
- How can I, by a different method, set the default encoding?
