[Python-Dev] A syntax for function attributes?
Wed, 30 Jul 2003 08:38:13 -0700
PEP 232 lists syntactic support for function attributions to be a
possible future direction. I would very much like to use function
attributes for associating metadata with functions and methods, but the
lack of such syntactic support precludes their use, so I end up
Has there been much further consideration of this issue? I'm not too
particular about the chosen syntax, I just need something that doesn't
require qualification with the function name (which tends to reduce
readability/typeability, in some cases drastically so).
I'm happy to write a PEP if that will help, but wanted to get a sense
of what people's thinking was.
