[Python-Dev] quick poll: could int, str, tuple etc. become type
Wed, 06 Jun 2001 13:39:56 +0200
For the dictionary initializer I would definitely want to be able to give an
object that adheres to the dictionary protocol, so that I can to things like
f = anydbm.open("foo", "r")
incore = dict(f)
Hmm, I guess this goes for most types: list() and tuple() should take any
iterable object, etc.
The one question is what "dictionary protocol" mean. Should it support
items()? Is only x.keys()/x good enough?
