Command line option -Q (floor division)

Discussion in 'Python' started by Christoph Zwerschke, Mar 23, 2006.

  1. I noticed that contrary to what is said in
    http://www.python.org/doc/2.2.3/whatsnew/node7.html,
    namely that integer divison should print deprecation
    warnings beginning with Python 2.3, even Python 2.4
    is still quiet about it, i.e. you still need to explicitely
    set the -Q warn option to see the warnings.
    Is that by intent or has it simply been forgotten?

  2. Just for the records, Anthony Baxter explained that this is by intent,
    because it would be still too disruptive a change. The testsuite does
    not even run completely with -Qnew yet. So it will be probably only
    changed with Python 3.0.

    Now it does, thanks for the nudge. ;)
    Most certainly.
