FWIW. I first opined that people should just write their own utility function. However, there are enough differences of opinion about the right semantics that I support it being in the standard library now.
Those decisions may or may not be made the way I most prefer, but I think an "official behavior in the edge cases is best to have... I can always implement my own version with different behavior if I need to.

Is this idea still alive?
Despite the bike shedding, I think that some level of consensus may have been reached. So I suggest that either Neil (because it was your idea) or Steven (because you've had a lot of opinions, and done a lot of the homework) or both, of course, put together a reference implementation and a proposal, post it here, and see how it flies.
It's one function, so hopefully won't need a PEP, but if your proposal meets with a lot of resistance, then you could turn it into a PEP then. But getting all this discussion summaries would be good as a first step.
NOTE: I think it's a fine idea, but I've got way to omay other things I'd like to do first -- so I'm not going to push this forward...

I can even think of a case where clamp could be used with a constant control and a varying bound: S-s inventory control facing occasional large orders in an otherwise continuous, stationary demand process.
Sounds interesting. Is there a link to somewhere I could learn more about this?
The textbook I use is Nancy Stokey, The Economics of Inaction https://www.amazon.co.jp/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?__mk_ja_JP=%E3%82% AB%E3%82%BF%E3%82%AB%E3%83%8A&url=search-alias%3Daps&field- keywords=nancy+stokey+economics+inaction
The example I gave is not a textbook example, but is an "obvious" extension of the simplest textbook models. _______________________________________________ Python-ideas mailing list Pythonfirstname.lastname@example.org https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-ideas Code of Conduct: http://python.org/psf/codeofconduct/
