Re: Testing dictionary results with doctest

P: n/a
Joe Strout:
What's the standard solution for this?
I don't know of any standard solution, I generally sort the items in
some ways, or add the result, that has to be equal:
>>r = foo()
r == {'object': 'rain', 'location': 'Spain', 'subloc': 'train'}
True

Does doctest have some special way to tell it to consider the result *
as a dictionary rather than a string? *Or something else?
A more general solution like this for sets/dics may become useful...
do you have any idea regarding how to design it?

Bye,
