Many thanks, Ian. My young son sent letters to Congress and got more helpful and encouraging replies!
Wish I could say the same. Every single letter I write to my Congress-critters yields a canned response that addresses nothing regarding the issues and questions in my letters. Phone calls to the 'critters offices are equally useless. To both Republicans and Democrats.
With respect to your original comment (“This has nothing to do with pylint”), in fairness, I did want to note that once Kyrian gets his IDE hooked to python, I can confirm that pylint WILL detect the error in his code:
Bob$ pylint -ry t.py ************* Module t E: 1, 0: invalid syntax (syntax-error) Bob$
I will say you made me look at the man page for pylint for the first time. Didn't see that "-r n" is an option, which can be useful when creating or reworking code and running pylint at frequent intervals.
