t/docs/directorate_d/st-ds/edo), I ran a small experiment where I used, IIRC, the profile hook to intercept all function / method calls, and log information about arguments and return value types to a gigantic log file. Then the log file could be parsed and these information used to suggest type annotations. Except there were no type annotations at the time in Python. s-project-story_en.pdfI know PyCharm can do a similar thing now: you run your program or your tests under the debugger, it logs runtime type information somewhere, and then can use it to suggest autocompletion or maybe type annotations.I didn't know this. Do you know where there are docs for this feature?This was described in this blog post when first introduced:And more tersely, in the documentation: https://www.jet brains.com/help/pycharm/python -debugger.htmlOh. It sounds like it doesn't generate stubs or PEP 484 annotations.
