Thanks Didier for the tip. Both iter("p") and "p".__getitem__ behaves
the same in both python and pypy. But "p".__iter__ behaves differently
and our code assumed that "p" is not iterable, so I just implemented a
+ if isinstance(x, str) and len(x) == 1:
+ return False
+ return True
+ except TypeError:
+ return False
Which fixes the problem above. Unfortunately, then there are other
Armin, is there some way to tell pypy-c to stop on ctrl-C? I am
getting hangups and the only way out is to kill the pypy-c program.
It'd be much more convenient if I could just do ctrl-C and it would
print the stacktrace.
I'll be continuing porting sympy to pypy some other time, so anyone
feel free to take over it. You just need to apply the patch in the
issue 1153 and then try to make all tests to pass.
