Supports encoding conversion between `unicode` and `ibm935` in Python

Project description

version license


The codec ibm935 is not yet officially supported. This package is designed for conversion between unicode and ibm935.


Using pip:

$ pip install ibm935 

Or manually download the archive and run the command after extracting the stuff inside:

$ python install


Before using this codec, import the module:

import ibm935

Then we can convert unicode strings into ibm935 codec as usual:

# Python 2
encoded_bytes = u"我爱Python这么美好的语言!".encode("ibm935")
decoded_string = encoded_bytes.decode("ibm935")

# Python 3 - the prefix `u` can be omitted
encoded_bytes = "我爱Python这么美好的语言!".encode("ibm935")
decoded_string = encoded_bytes.decode("ibm935")

We can also write files using this codec:

with open("ibm935.txt", "w", encoding="ibm935") as f:


  • This package is not yet fully tested.
  • There is a tough situation where writing a file with separate words(double-byte) causes redundant bytes like \x0f\x0e.
