Python launcher (PEP 397) and emacs python-mode.el

T

Thomas Heller

Has someone managed to patch python-mode.el to use
the PEP 397 python launcher when you hit C-c C-c?

It seems that emacs should parse the shebang line in the edited
python script and pass the corresponding arguments to py.exe.

Yes, that's the way python-mode.el acts by default.

AFAIU that launcher is implemented in Python3.3 and should not need any patch at all.
Should it not work, please file a bug-report at

Well, let me make these remarks:

1. I'm on Windows, using gnu-emacs 24.2.1, and python-mode.el 6.1.0.
I do not understand how the shebang line is used by python-mode.el,
depending on what I write into it either 'python.exe' is started when
I hit C-c C-c, or I get 'Spawning child process: invalid argument'.
The latter occurs most often when the shebang string contains 'jython'.


2. I would like to use the PEP 397 python launcher to start the python
version that is specified in the shebang line.
The python launcher py.exe parses this line when I run 'py script.py',
and then starts the corresponding python interpreter version.
The launcher parses the shebang line by its own rules (see pep397 for
exact details). One example is this:

<script>
#!/usr/bin/python3.1-32
import sys; print(sys.version)
</script>

The python launcher starts 'c:\Python31\python.exe -3.1-32 script.py'.

I would like emacs to do the same; however this would require emacs
to do the same shebang line parsing as the launcher does.

That doesn't seem right, the launcher on my system launches using

c:\Python31\python.exe script.py

if I just run script.py, or if I invoke it as

py -3.1-32 script.py

it still launches using

c:\Python31\python.exe script.py

it uses py-shebang-regexp to determine
- if a shebang is given
- if, yes, which interpreter to run
depending on what I write into it either 'python.exe' is started when
I hit C-c C-c, or I get 'Spawning child process: invalid argument'.
The latter occurs most often when the shebang string contains 'jython'.

please file a bug-report giving some example script which triggers the bug

unfortunatly don't have a windows at my disposal.

At linux it would run exactly the interpreter specified. Might be okay for windows as shown.

I would like emacs to do the same; however this would require emacs
to do the same shebang line parsing as the launcher does.

So we do - looks like python-mode.el precedes PEP 397 :)

Expecting the bug elsewhere.

Sorry for the confusion that I am causing. Vinay, you are right of course.

What I meant to write is this:

when the shebang line in script.py contains this:
#!/usr/bin/python3.1-32
then emacs SHOULD run
py.exe -3.1-32 script.py
and the launcher runs
c:\Python31\python.exe script.py

IMO it would be better for emacs to just run

py.exe script.py

and py.exe can read the shebang and do the right thing. This saves the emacs code
from having to duplicate the shebang line processing logic that py.exe uses
(which, as we know, is unusual. So for a cross-platform you can have a shebang
line of #!/usr/bin/python3.2, and on Windows it will still call the appropriate
Python 3.2 even if it's not in /usr/bin, as there's no /usr/bin :))
