code indentation

Hello,

In my previously post I have been talk about running code with exec in......
So now I have problem with code indentation, as Gabriel Genellina says:
>If you are using the tokenize module as suggested some time ago, try to
analyze the token sequence you get using { } (or perhaps begin/end pairs
in your own language, that are easier to distinguish from a dictionary
display) and the sequence you get from the "real" python code. Then write
a script to transform one into another:
>from tokenize import generate_tokens
from token import tok_name
from cStringIO import StringIO
>def analyze(source):
g = generate_tokens(StringIO(source).readline)
for toknum, tokval, _, _, _ in g:
print tok_name[toknum], repr(tokval)
>I think you basically will have to ignore INDENT, DEDENT, and replace
NAME+"begin" with INDENT, NAME+"end" with DEDENT.
So......how can I do this?????????????
I will appreciate any help!!!!!

Regards,
Vedran

Try with a simple example. Let's say you want to convert this:

It's unfortunate that you are having difficulty with two languages
simultaneously: your command of English, though impressive, appears

would do well to learn that increasing the number of consecutive
punctuation marks (!!!, ???) is a sure way to turn away many people
who would otherwise be helpful. Sentences need at most one '!' or '?',
adding more does not improve the chances of being taken seriously.

Whats stupid about this? It's sane advice.

Which looks more serious to you:

this:
I can't do it!!!! Can you PLEASE help me????!!!?!

or this:
I don't know the answer. Can you please help me?

Even if it makes no difference to you, to many people it does. So Ben is
right: People *will* take your posts more seriously if you restrict your
use of punctuation (if only because its easier to read).
Don't feel offended, nobody was trying to put you down.

Your lack of command of the python language and programming concepts in
general is only excelled by your inabillity to react properly in a
community of friendly people that try to point out how to behave as a
human being instead of a complete jerk.

And given your history of ignorance of sound advice, I think I'm not
stressing my crystal ball to much if I predict: you won't receive much
more help here.

We should be making allowances for this particular poster on account of
relative youth: I hadn't realised earlier, but we are dealing with a
fourteen-year-old. Since fourteen-year-olds already know everything we
should be honored we are being asked for help at all ;-)

Hi again,

Just one more question, can I maybe do this indentation with string
e.g
here is my failed example of try with string:

kl="n=90;if n==90:print'kajmakimar'"

for line in kl.split(";"):
li=[]
m=li.append(line)
if line.endswith(':'):
m.append("\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t")
print m

......so maybe if you can help me with this?

Regards,

Vedran

If I understand you correctly, you're trying to make a "pretty-printer"
in python, right? Something that will take arbitrary python source
code, recognize the blocks and so forth, and then emit clean python code
(text) with tabs for indents instead of spaces?

This won't work. It's impossible to know how deep to indent without any
begin/end-tokens. Consider this simple example:

if foo:
print "foo"
if bar:
print "bar"

is equal to

'if foo:;print"foo";if bar:;print "bar"'

But that could as well be

if foo:
print "foo"
if bar:
print "bar"

So - you need some block delimiters.

And as it has been said to you a bazzillion times: stop doing what
you're doing. Use python. As it is. Your limited understandig of parsing
and language design makes your task beyond your capabilites. For now.
And the forseeable future...

I don't believe that's true. One of the great advantages of discussion
over the internet is that one's behaviour is what is judged, without
necessary prejudice from one's age, skin tone, facial features, or the
like. Set against the many disadvantages of internet discussion, I
think "judge only on basis of behaviour" is a good default.

The list.append method returns None. It appends the item to the list.
>>lines = []
result = lines.append("foo")
print result
None

So, there's no need to do anything with the result of append() -- just
continue using the list object.
>>print lines
['foo']
>>lines.append("bar")
print lines
['foo', 'bar']

Fair enough, but I was simply suggesting we cut him some slack, not that
we completely ignore any obnoxious behavior we might observe.
