Okay. So is it also planned to change the existing error messages for user-defined functions? E.g.: >>> def f(a, b=1): ... pass ... >>> f() Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> TypeError: f() missing 1 required positional argument: 'a' If yes, then I think all these changes need to be coordinated, and that probably involves submitting a proposal to the mailing list. If no, then I think the change proposed in this issue is not an improvement, since it makes the error messages overall inconsistent. ---------- _______________________________________ Python tracker <rep...@bugs.python.org> <http://bugs.python.org/issue16543> _______________________________________ _______________________________________________ Python-bugs-list mailing list Unsubscribe: http://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-bugs-list/archive%40mail-archive.com
