Re: Python -v import behavior

Hi all,
(A similar question was posted by a colleague, but did not appear to reach
comp.lang.pytho n or this list).

I am wondering if the -v option causes the python application to be more
tolerant to module import warnings and / or errors.

The reason is that a module is failing to import correctly (generating an
ImportError exception). Examining this closer we re-ran the script using
the -v option. to find that "Unsatisfie d symbol" errors we being displayed
during import (cx_Oracle 4.3.1, python 2.5.1, HP-UX 11, oracle 9.2).
However, the module is usable from the python prompt (when using -v)
displayed, i.e. dir (cx_Oracle) works correctly, as does database
interaction. Without the -v option the script is halted due to the
ImportError exception.

My questions are:
1. Is there a way to mimic the seemingly more tolerant import behavior of
python -v without producing the verbose output ?
2. Is the behavior described above expected and documented ?
If -v makes a difference, it is most likely due to timing. The output
to console slows down your app enough so that the ImportError doesn't
get raised. Try piping output to a text file. Also experiment with the
-u (unbuffered output) option.

Another possibility is that the python binary that runs (when you
launch with -v) is different to the one that the script normally runs
with (see #! line at start of script). Also try adding the -v to the
#! line instead of the command line.

Something for you to try: Making a temporary copy of the project, and
then cut out all the code except the import lines. See if that fails,
then start commenting out imports until the error goes away.
