Python String Decode() Method

Hello guys! Welcome back to another section of my tutorial on Python. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be discussing about the Python String Decode() method.

The Python string decode() method decodes the string using the codec registered for encoding. It defaults to the default string encoding.  


The following below is the syntax for the Python String decode() method -

str.decode(encoding ='UTF-8' , errors ='strict')

Parameter Details

  • encoding - This is the encodings to be used.

Return Value

Returns the decoded string. 


The following below is a simple example -


Str = "this is string example....wow!!!";
Str = Str.encode('base64','strict');

print "Encoded String: " + Str
print "Decoded String: " + Str.decode('base64','strict')

Below is the output of the above example -

Encoded String: dGhpcyBpcyBzdHJpbmcgZXhhbXBsZS4uLi53b3chISE=
Decoded String: this is string example....wow!!!

Alright guys! This is where we are rounding up for this tutorial post. In my next tutorial, we are going to be discussing about the Python String encode() method.
