Stefan Behnel added the comment: This is not purely about speeding up the code. It's also about avoiding to replace the code object of a function, which is essentially a big and clumsy hack only to achieve setting a flag. Some tools, namely line_profiler, use the current code object as a dict key for state keeping. Replacing the reference in "__code__" might confuse them if they happened to catch a reference before.
That's why I asked for applying at least the simple patch that sets the flag with a C level helper function. But I'd be ok with applying the latest patch as it is. The non-flag-setting parts are simple and a straight forward translation of the current Python code. ---------- _______________________________________ Python tracker <rep...@bugs.python.org> <http://bugs.python.org/issue24325> _______________________________________ _______________________________________________ Python-bugs-list mailing list Unsubscribe: https://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-bugs-list/archive%40mail-archive.com
