"as" keyword should be blocked in 2.7

If you run Repy in Python 2.7, the "as" keyword in except clauses is allowed. This keyword does not work in Python 2.5 or 2.6.

The change in behavior causes WORA headaches. We should address this issue (probably by blocking the keyword) to avoid confusion.

Change History

Changed 7 years ago by justinc

The parse trees (from the compiler module) look identical for code using the "as" syntax vs a comma:

A different strategy will be needed.

Changed 7 years ago by justinc

It looks at a high level, like we could simply allow the "as" syntax by simply including into repy.py:

from future import with_statement

Since the "with" node is a separate node in the compiler parse tree, this change will not allow it to be used.

  • owner changed from justinc to gpress
  • status changed from new to assigned

Why don't you take a look and see if we should sunset support for 2.5 and add support for 2.7?
