PEP 329: Treating Builtins as Constants in the Standard Library

Discussion in 'Python' started by Raymond Hettinger, Apr 19, 2004.

  1. Comments are invited on a new pep:

    http://www.python.org/peps/pep-0329.html



    Based on feedback received so far, there were several changes to the
    original draft:

    * The module is public

    * The module name reflects its nature as a bytecode hack

    * There is a flag to disable binding

    * Added summaries of how it works, when it is called, and the effect on
    startup time (near zero).

    * Included a reference to Jython FAQs supporting the means for
    automatically doing nothing in environments without bytecodes.
