I have a list of objects that generate code. Some
of them depend on others being listed first, to
satisfy dependencies of others.
I wrote a cmp function something like this:
def dep_cmp(ob1, ob2):
if ob1.name in ob2.deps:
I also tried returning 0 when there were no dependency
relationships between the objects.
This failed, because every object was not compared with
ever other. I imagine that this is because sort assumes
that if a > b and b > c, then a > c. In my case, this
isn't really true. If a is not dependent on b, and
b is not dependent on c, that doesn't mean that a is not
dependent on c.
Is there a better way?
