MySQL Question

Unicode codes of the greek alphabet in python

I am running this code in python 2.7 version.

import sys, os
sys.path.append(os.path.join(os.path.split(os.path.abspath(__file__))[0], 'lib'))
from bottle import route, run, static_file, request
import pymysql as db
import settings

con = db.connect(
settings.mysql_host,
settings.mysql_user,
settings.mysql_passwd,
settings.mysql_schema,
charset='utf8',
use_unicode=True)

cur = con.cursor()

cur.execute("SELECT tragoudi.titlos, tragoudi.etos_par, cd_production.etaireia FROM tragoudi JOIN singer_prod ON tragoudi.titlos=singer_prod.title JOIN cd_production ON singer_prod.cd=cd_production.code_cd GROUP BY tragoudi.titlos HAVING tragoudi.titlos LIKE %s AND tragoudi.etos_par LIKE %s AND cd_production.etaireia LIKE %s",("ΑΓΩΝΙΑ","1978","SONY"))
con.commit()

#cur.execute("SELECT * FROM kalitexnis")


for row in cur.fetchall():
table = row[:]

print table
con.close()


and it gives me as a result this:

(u'\u0391\u0393\u03a9\u039d\u0399\u0391', 1978, u'SONY')


which is correct because the unicode of the word 'ΑΓΩΝΙΑ΄ is
A=\u0391
Γ=\u0393
etc.
So my question is that if there is a way when i
print table
to get as a result

(u'ΑΓΩΝΙΑ', 1978, u'SONY')

Answer

Python 2 uses u as a prefix to tell it that it is a Unicode string, so if you print the list element by element, it should print out correctly.

So:

for x in table
    print x
