I've been looking for the list Python format characters for a good 30 minutes. I can't find any.
etc but I need a list with them along with a description if possible please.
Here you go, Python documentation on old string formatting. tutorial -> 7.1.1. Old String Formatting -> "More information can be found in the [link] section".
Note that you should start using the new string formatting when possible.
It's the first result on Google: http://docs.python.org/library/stdtypes.html#string-formatting
See also the new format() function: http://docs.python.org/library/stdtypes.html#str.format
