[New-bugs-announce] [issue23313] Wrong complex variable being altered
report at bugs.python.org
Sat Jan 24 20:01:57 CET 2015
New submission from Gerrit Barrere:
The bug occurs on line 77 of the attached script. When I change the imaginary part of 'z' on line 77, it also changes the imaginary part of 'zload', which is supposed to remain constant. Putting a dummy assignment 'z = z + 0' on line 76 fixes the bug. This is all described in the comments around line 77 also.
I found this in the PyCharm IDE by putting a breakpoint just after line 77 and watching variables 'z' and 'zload'. The function 'model()' is called repeatedly in this script, and you can see 'zload' changing every time the function is called.
