sys.settrace() and Python 2.3


Josiah Carlson

According to my reading of Python 2.3 docs, the call to goo() at the end
should exit with a KeyboardInterrupt...

import sys

def goo():
while 1:

count = [100]
def foo(frame, event, arg):
count[0] -= 1
if not count[0]:
raise KeyboardInterrupt
return foo



In Python 2.3, the above call to goo() doesn't seem to ever return. It
exits with a KeyboardInterrupt in 2.4, as expected. Does anyone have an
idea why this is the case? I've checked the release notes for both 2.3
and 2.4 and found no discussion of trace functions in them or
sourceforge (I could be entering in the wrong terms, of course).

Any pointers as to why there is a difference would be appreciated.
Thank you,
