Natural Language user searches based on "intent of code"
Module Name/Function names: user wants more details on something he
already knows exists
Exception Name: Great, finds you the exception definition just like any
other Class name.
Googling for "UnicodeEncodingError Python" gives me a link to the 2.7
documentation which says at the top "this is not yet updated for python 3"
- I dont know how important this is
Googling for "UnicodeEncodingError Python 3" gives
This is a great document. It explains encoding very well.
The unicode tutorial doesnt mention anything about the terminal output
encoding to STDOUT, and whilst this is obvious after a while, it is not
always clear the printing to the terminal is the cause of the attempt to
encode as ascii during a print statement.
To some extent, the unicode tutorial doesnt have the practical specifics
that are being discussed in this thread which is targetted at "learning
curve into Python"
I think the most important points here are:
The exception knows what version of Python its from (which allows the
language to make changes
It would be nice to have a wiki type document targetted by the
- "Python Official Docs"
- Murgh, Fix This NOW, Dont care how dirty
- Contributed Docs we have none and loved/stack overflow etc...
- Discussions from python-dev / python ideas
- PEPs that apply
The point is that Google cant be responsible for making sure all these
sections are laid out, obvious correct or constant
