How do I convert a number to a string?


To convert, e.g., the number 144 to the string '144', use the built-in function str().

If you want a hexadecimal or octal representation, use the built-in functions hex() or oct().

For fancy formatting, use the % operator on strings, e.g. "%04d" % 144 yields '0144' and "%.3f" % (1/3.0) yields '0.333'.
