[New-bugs-announce] [issue3523] Reverse quotes in Python 3.0 tutorial

Jim Sizelove report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Jim Sizelove <jimsize at gmail.com>:

The Input and Output section of the tutorial says: "Reverse quotes (``)
are equivalent to repr(), but they are no longer used in modern Python
code and are removed in future versions of the language."  Is now that
future time with Python 3.0?  I get syntax errors when I try to run the
examples that use reverse quotes.  The attached patch removes the
explanation and examples of reverse quotes.
