Marco Buttu added the comment:
In addition, also if here "function blocks" means nested function, the sentence "Free variables are returned by locals() when it is called in function blocks" I think is wrong. It is true only in case of free variables belonging to the local enclosing scope. For instance, in the following case ``x`` is free in ``moo()``, but it is not in ``locals()``::
>>> x = 10
>>> def foo():
... def moo():
... return moo
>>> moo = foo()
I attach a patch with a new description and an example.
PS. Is the rst rendered by Sphinx? In that case, why we are not using the doctest Sphinx extension to test the code examples?
