[Python-Dev] Mmh, unrelated "silly" test suite patch
Tue, 26 Feb 2002 23:36:28 +0100
Hi, mmh, kind of break
strange as it may seem (CVS homework results)
in 1994 Guido added some tests for the tuple
built-in to the test suite but this one has
never grown some explicit tests for the basic behavior
Maybe there is some esoteric reason for this,
but anyway I have just posted a patch to SF
with tests for list() and an amended test for tuple(),
in particular they try to check:
list2 = list(LIST)
list2 is not LIST and list2 == LIST
tuple(TUPLE) is TUPLE
also the documented behavior.
Yup, there is no hurry to check this in,
I have written this because
yesterday the lacking test has burned "badly" your Jython brothers
[we don't have a time machine on our side :(]
and for the benefit of the future generations of Python
The new tests pass Python 2.2.
to-129-ly y'rs - Samuele.
