Terry J. Reedy <tjre...@udel.edu> added the comment: When the IDLE GUI process is started, its main.__file__ is set to the idlelib .py file used to start the process. If IDLE is started with -n, so that user code is run in the same process (the original mode), the -r or -s startup file and code entered at >>> sees this value*, rather than the user startup file name or a NameError.
* I am not sure why it does not see the value of __file__ in the pyshell module, which I would expect to be '.../idlelib/pyshell.py'. The change proposed above would fix __file__ for -n also, but would disable any subsequently executed idle code that uses __file__ that gets unset. So I think the wrapping should be conditioned on use_subprocess (True unless -n). ---------- _______________________________________ Python tracker <rep...@bugs.python.org> <https://bugs.python.org/issue32984> _______________________________________ _______________________________________________ Python-bugs-list mailing list Unsubscribe: https://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-bugs-list/archive%40mail-archive.com
