When I attempted to recreate his error message with the original code
snippets he sent, I got something a bit different:
py3: guess = input()
py3: guess < number
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: '<' not supported between instances of 'str' and 'int'
I am running Python 3.6.1 on Windows 7 64-bit. Off-list Howard told
me that he is running Python 3.5 on Windows 7, using PyCharm as his
Did the text of this error message change between Python 3.5 and 3.6?
Could how he is using PyCharm -- a full-fledged Python IDE -- be
causing this problem? I once tried out PyCharm a few years back, but
cannot recall if one has to save first before re-running the code from
within PyCharm in order for it to see the most recent version or not.
