[IronPython] Possible IronPython and FePy Issues

Thanks for the bug reports.  I've opened a bug for the dictionary deletion issue (http://www.codeplex.com/WorkItem/View.aspx?ProjectName=IronPython&WorkItemId=4769).

I'm a little worried about treating DEL the same as backspace - what happens when an actual DEL character comes in?  This one has come up before too, but I don't think we yet have a bug on it.

Subject: [IronPython] Possible IronPython and FePy Issues


I'm trying to run IronPython under Mono on OS X and found a couple of issues.

This code fragment fails when it shouldn't:

d = dict()
d[None] = "bleem"
del d[None]

With CPython, the key None is deleted on IronPython I get this
Traceback (most recent call last):
TypeError: index must be integer or slice

Also another minor issue is that OS X's Terminal.app sends DEL instead of BS, so I needed to add

   if (key.KeyChar == '\x7f') goto case ConsoleKey.Backspace;  // DEL

to the default case in SuperConsole.ReadLine
