Ok; this is a bit esoteric. So finally is executed regardless of whether an exception occurs, so states the docs.
But, I thought, if I <return> from my function first, that should take precedence. au contraire Turns out that if you do this: try: failingthing() except FailException: return 0 finally: return 1 Then finally really is executed regardless... even though you told it to return. That seems odd to me. -- https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-list
