Python : Convert(cast) bytes to string example

Problem :

You want to convert or type cast bytes variable to type string variables in Python. How to do that?

Solution :

For Python 3 :

To convert bytes to string, just type cast with the str pre-fix. For example :

 var = b"this is a string"
 <class 'bytes'>
 var2 = str(var)
 <class 'str'>

You can convert the bytes variable straightaway by adding the 'str' pre-fix.

 var = str(b"this is a string")
 <class 'str'>

Happy Coding!
