My guess is you are passing a unicode string as a filename
and not an 8-bit python string. Currently we cannot easily test
for unicode as we have to run on pre-Unicode versions of
The relevant code is in pdfdoc, class PDFDocument, method saveToFile
and does this!
if type(filename) is StringType:
myfile = 1
f = open(filename, "wb")
myfile = 0
f = filename # IT BETTER BE A FILE-LIKE OBJECT!
So if you pass a Unicode string it assumes it's something
Solution: either do
filename = str(filename)
in your code before setting up the canvas, or explicitly pass
in an open file object.
