Which is the 33th most voted Python question on SO -
I am curious how you get that number. I do note that there are about 15 other Python SO questions that seem to be variations on the theme. There might be more if 'blocks' and 'groups' were searched for.
- Go http://stackoverflow.com/
- Search [python]
- Click `votes` tab
- Choose `30 per page` at the bottom
- Jump to the second page, there it is 4th from the top:
Yes. I don't think this is particularly significant. Have a look at some of the questions with roughly the same number of votes:
#26 "How can I remove (chomp) a newline in Python?" 176 votes
#33 "How do you split a list into evenly sized chunks in Python?" 149 votes
#36 "Accessing the index in Python for loops" 144 votes
Being 33rd most voted question doesn't really mean much.
By the way, why is this discussion going to both python-dev and python-ideas?
