15.3.4 Python Format Strings

There are two kinds of format strings in Python: those acceptable to the Python built-in format operator %, labelled as ‘python-format’, and those acceptable to the format method of the ‘str’ object.

Python % format strings are described in Python Library reference / 2. Built-in Types, Exceptions and Functions / 2.2. Built-in Types / 2.2.6. Sequence Types / 2.2.6.2. String Formatting Operations. http://www.python.org/doc/2.2.1/lib/typesseq-strings.html.

Python brace format strings are described in PEP 3101 – Advanced String Formatting, http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-3101/.
