Add flag to ignore unicode literal prefixes in doctests

Project Description


doctest-ignore-unicode is a plugin (currently only for Nose) that adds a flag to ignore unicode literal prefixes in doctests.

The implmentation is inspired by


>>> def hello_world():
...     return 'Hello World'
>>> hello_world()  # doctest: +IGNORE_UNICODE
u'Hello World'



If you need to ask you probably don’t need it. (Hint: supporting python 2 & 3 in the same codebase).
