There appear to be two different ways to convert a string to bytes, as seen in the answers to TypeError: 'str' does not support the buffer interface

Which of these methods would be better or more Pythonic? Or is it just a matter of personal preference?

b = bytes(mystring,'utf-8')

b = mystring.encode('utf-8')

  • You can do the conversion by performing following code:-

my_str = "hello world" 

my_str_as_bytes = str.encode(my_str) 


my_decoded_str = my_str_as_bytes.decode() type(my_decoded_str)
