Python's error has nothing to do with the interactive editors. It's the Python syntax.


isn't valid.


is, and works both in a file and in the Python shell.

Also, the thing ruby displays to the left by default when interacting is a little too verbose IMO. It leaves too little space in an 80-column terminal, and the extra information is something I don't find interesting 99% of the time.

Also, when splitting a line at a binary operator, I prefer to put the operator on the second line. I also think the parens make it look more clear (it's part of the GNU coding conventions). I don't think it's a bug.

Ben: Thanks for the info, I stand corrected. :-)

The article has been updated to reflect this new understanding as well.

When Perl6 will be officially announced? Tom at LmhSoft
