I've been using this python code:
pattern = u'丨フ丨ノ一丨ノ丶フノ一ノ丨フ一一ノフフ丶' result = [u'<span id="z_i_t2_bis" title="\u7ad6\u6298\u7ad6\u6487\u6a2a\u7ad6\u6487\u637a\u6298\u6487\u6a2a\u6487\u7ad6\u6298\u6a2a\u6a2a\u6487\u6298\u6298\u637a">\u4e28\u30d5\u4e28\u30ce\u4e00\u4e28\u30ce\u4e36\u30d5\u30ce\u4e00\u30ce\u4e28\u30d5\u4e00\u4e00\u30ce\u30d5\u30d5\u4e36</span>'] if pattern in result: print('found')
But this is cumbersome and moreover doesn't really do what I want, which is to get the escaped gobbledygook back into something comprehensible, as in that pattern. Is there some simple unix tool or commnand to perform this task quickly and efficiently?
seems that is one would work, but I tried it and it did not. i.e.,
result = "\u4e28\u30d5\u4e28\u30ce\u4e00\u4e28\u30ce\u4e36\u30d5\u30ce\u4e00\u30ce\u4e28\u30d5\u4e00\u4e00\u30ce\u30d5\u30d5\u4e36" result.decode('utf-8')
which generated the error:
attribute error 'str' object has no attribute 'decode'
