Perhaps if you were to read the ENTIRE traceback, not just the last line,
you will see something that hints at an explanation. Here is a similar
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "/usr/local/lib/python3.3/_strptime.py", line 494, in
tt = _strptime(data_string, format)
File "/usr/local/lib/python3.3/_strptime.py", line 306, in _strptime
raise TypeError(msg.format(index, type(arg)))
TypeError: strptime() argument 0 must be str, not <class 'NoneType'>
After reading the full traceback, I conclude that the time.strptime
function calls _strptime._strptime. After importing _strptime and looking
at the __file__ attribute, I see that it is a pure-python module. So, to
answer your immediate question:
"explain why it [the time.strptime function] thinks I want an underscored
the answer is, it thinks you want an underscored name because you *do*
need an underscored name. It is part of the implementation of
time.strptime that it delegates some of the work to a private module
As for why that is not available under mod_wsgi module, but is available
when running under the normal Python environment, I have looked at the
_strptime.py source code and nothing stands out to explain why the
_strptime function might not be defined. So that seems like a question
about mod_wsgi. I suggest you start here:
If you do get an answer, please post it here as well, so others in the
future who stumble across this thread will see the answer.
