Hi, I'm running into problems while installing. Using a stock Python.org Python 2.7 on Mac OS X snow leopard 10.6.8, I see problems with print() function syntax while running setup.py:
~/pkg/_sources/ipython-0.11 $ python setup.py build
File "setup.py", line 32
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
When I manually change these to remove the ", file=sys.stderr" part (from two print statements), I still run into errors:
~/pkg/sources/ipython-0.11 $ python setup.py buildTraceback (most recent call last):
File "setup.py", line 54, in
from IPython.utils.path import target_update
File "/Users/charles/pkg/sources/ipython-0.11/IPython/__init.py", line 43, in
from .config.loader import Config
File "/Users/charles/pkg/_sources/ipython-0.11/IPython/config/loader.py", line 315
exec compile(open(self.full_filename).read(), self.full_filename, 'exec')
SyntaxError: unqualified exec is not allowed in function '_read_file_as_dict' it contains a nested function with free variables
I can't use the easy_installer, since obviously that uses an incorrect version of Python (2.6, not my Python.org version 2.7). Any help getting ipython working with Python version 2.7 would be appreciated.
What file did you download? It looks like you've got the Python 3 version of the 0.11 release. You need the main (Python 2) version.
You can find all of our downloads on our site.
I'm closing this as it's not really a bug with our code but rather that the OP ended up with an incorrect download for some reason. The source download on our site doesn't have that syntax.
