This is the first time I see that and I totally like the idea of writing
".>>>" instead of ">>>" at the beginning of a line. Thank you Dr. Dobb!
It's unfortunate for c.l.py that Python uses ">>>" as the default prompt
as it messes up the display on mail/news readers that provide "syntax
highlighting" for quotes.
I wish everyone would write examples that way! On the other hand - three
levels of quoting are really rare, maybe it would be easier to change that
in the mail readers...
... or in Py3k ?
