verify whether "str" is still callable in Python 2.5.1

hi Group:

Once use ActivePython latest version for Python 2.5.1.
I happened to find function "str" is not callable, but it is available
for Python 2.5.
Can anybody give some comments about it?
Any response is highly appreciated.

Thanks

If it's not callable it's not the str() function, but something else with a
badly chosen variable name.
>>callable(str)
True
>>str = "yadda"
callable(str)
False

False

I don't really understand what your asking. str is a callable, it has
always been AFAIK, since it's a type constructor, like int()

In [1]: callable(str)
Out[1]: True

In [2]: str()
Out[2]: ''
