install warning

P: n/a
I downloaded python 2.4. When attempting to run python interpreter, I
get following:
warning: strop functions are obsolete; use string methods
How do I correct this? Did I do install incorrectly?
Thanks - John

You are importing and using, directly or indirectly, the "strop" module.

Here's an example from the interactive interpreter which triggers the warning:

$ python2.3
Python 2.3.3 (#1, May 7 2004, 10:31:40)
[GCC 3.3.3 20040412 (Red Hat Linux 3.3.3-7)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
import strop
strop.strip(" abc ") __main__:1: DeprecationWarning: strop functions are obsolete; use string methods

Most of the things in strop are now simply methods on string objects: " abc ".strip()


Another way to prevent the warning from being printed is through use of the
'warnings' module, which is documented on


Version: GnuPG v1.4.1 (GNU/Linux)
