This comparison is now used by default when Unicode strings are compared with.
The Changing Landscape: The Rise Of Python 3 Of the top 360 packages listed on , 95% are Python 3 compatibile. Using Unicode is a much more common scenario so it has reduced development time for everyone that does Python 3. Over the years, a number of authors have written alternative implementations that remember the order that the keys were originally inserted. New module: sysconfig The module has been pulled out of the Distutils package, becoming a new top-level module in its own right.

Curly brackets are used to surround the contents of the resulting mutable set; set literals are distinguished from dictionaries by not containing colons and values. Additionally, it no longer requires that the code end in a newline. Since we usually iterate over those only once anyway, I think this change makes a lot of sense to save memory. It is preferred to use the floating value like 7.
Added as a result of. Previously it gave a string based on rounding x to 17 decimal digits. There are indeed companies with deep ties to a Python 2 library, but even this does not require that Python 2 be used to develop atop the library. You can also check the or to get an overview of which popular Python libraries are currently compatible with Python 3. So, if you're interested in making sure you can use the latest and greatest features in either Python or your favorite library, you should look into migrating to Python 3 sooner rather then later. Although this is not a new decision for Python development teams, 2017 brings with it several important differences that make this decision crucial for proper forward planning.
Any protocol, any international standard by definition of being international only defines keys in Ascii. I wouldn't be surprised if other libraries do the same.

For example, the following setting will print warnings every time they occur, but turn warnings from the Cookie module into an error. Previously code would need to get the index of the bytecode instruction currently executing, and then look up the line number corresponding to that address. Both features added by Raymond Hettinger. For example, in below Python 2. From what I've seen, that's typically not true. The constructor for now accepts floating-point numbers added by Raymond Hettinger; and non-European Unicode characters such as Arabic-Indic digits contributed by Mark Dickinson;.
