Hello,\n\nIn the 3.0 changes list there is mentioned that "<"-compares are not\nsupported anymore if the compared types are different (except\nnumbers). Like\n 42 < "Hello"\ndid return True of False depending on the implementation but is now a\nTypeError.\n\nBut the document also mentions that the result is not strictly\n"undefined" but "reproducable undetermined". Meaning, that on a given\nmachine with a given python implementation result will always be the\nsame. But on another machine, or with another python implementation,\nit might give a different result.\n\nMy question now is, why this is? E.g, Is there an integer large enough\nso that the result changes? What circumstances influence the result?\n\nThanks in advance.\n\ntschau, towi.
