Reverse Printf

Project description

pypi-version License

Reverse Printf.

I dont understand

Look this code (python):

>>> print("%2d%2d" % (19, 81))

Oh well, but what’s happen if I need revert the number 1981 to original 19 and 81?:

$ echo "1981" | reverpf "%2d%2d"

Of course, only works in fixed print.

System requirements

  • Python3


I do not know if the printf of C is a standard, but it seems that the python works the same.


$ pip install reverpf



usage: reverpf [-h] -f FORMAT [-i FILE] [-s SEPARATOR] [-v]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -f FORMAT, --format FORMAT
                        Format from printf
  -i FILE, --input-file FILE
                        File input
  -s SEPARATOR, --separator SEPARATOR
                        Separator string
  -v, --version         show program's version number and exit


# From stdin
$ echo "1981" | reverpf -f "%2d%2d"

# From file
$ reverpf -f "%2d%2d" -i file.txt -s "|"
