Hello all!

Could anyone please say me what is the right way to handle broken
pipes in Python?
I can wrap all my print statements with try/except blocks but it looks
like overkill for me.

I'm using my Python script this way: my_script | less
The script produces a lot of data.
So usually when I find what I'm looking for and press 'q' script is
still writing something.

Thanks in advance,
