I think this is probably due to some changes w/ method dispatch (we'll no longer convert from char to int?).  I'll have to ask around to see if that's part of the design or not.  As a work around you can do:

Subject: [IronPython] Bug in beta9?


I have hit a change in the behaviour that results in an exception. Is this behaviour expected? My workaround for now is to change chr to str.


file(tipy.py) used in test:

import System
print "Press a key"
print chr(a.KeyChar)

Test with beta8:
 >c:\IronPython-1.0-Beta8\IronPythonConsole.exe tipy.py Press a key d

Test with beta9:
 >c:\IronPython-1.0-Beta9\ipy -i tipy.py Press a key Traceback (most recent call last):
   File C:\python\pyreadline_branch\pyreadline\console\tipy.py, line 8, in Initialize
   File , line 0, in Chr##75
TypeError: Cannot convert Char(d) to Int32
