i looked at the python 3k print module from griboullis
and i want to use it for python 2.5 without having to import it every time, i think it needs to be builtin but how can it do this, i don't mind if the old print is still there but id prefer it if it was gone.
here is the code
# module cbprint # (C) 2008 Gribouillis at www.daniweb.com """This module defines a Print function to use with python 2.x or 3.x. Usage: from cbprint import Print Print("hello", "world") It's interface is that of python 3.0's print. See http://docs.python.org/3.0/library/functions.html?highlight=print#print """ __all__ = ["Print"] import sys try: Print = eval("print") # python 3.0 case except SyntaxError: try: D = dict() exec("from __future__ import print_function\np=print", D) Print = D["p"] # 2.6 case del D except SyntaxError: del D def Print(*args, **kwd): # 2.4, 2.5, define our own Print function fout = kwd.get("file", sys.stdout) w = fout.write if args: w(str(args)) sep = kwd.get("sep", " ") for a in args[1:]: w(sep) w(str(a)) w(kwd.get("end", "\n"))
