dedent ( text )

dedent(text : string) -> string

Remove any whitespace than can be uniformly removed from the left of every line in `text`.

This can be used e.g. to make triple-quoted strings line up with the left edge of screen/whatever, while still presenting it in the source code in indented form.

For example:

def test(): # end first line with \ to avoid the empty line! s = ''' hello world '' print repr(s) # prints hello world ' print repr(dedent(s)) # prints hello world

  fill 
fill (
        text,
        width=70,
        **kwargs,
        )

Fill a single paragraph of text, returning a new string.

Reformat the single paragraph in text to fit in lines of no more than width columns, and return a new string containing the entire wrapped paragraph. As with wrap(), tabs are expanded and other whitespace characters converted to space. See TextWrapper class for available keyword args to customize wrapping behaviour.

  wrap 
wrap (
        text,
        width=70,
        **kwargs,
        )

Wrap a single paragraph of text, returning a list of wrapped lines.

Reformat the single paragraph in text so it fits in lines of no more than width columns, and return a list of wrapped lines. By default, tabs in text are expanded with string.expandtabs(), and all other whitespace characters (including newline) are converted to space. See TextWrapper class for available keyword args to customize wrapping behaviour.
