Originally reported by: rbtcollins (Bitbucket: rbtcollins, GitHub: rbtcollins)


PEP 427 specifies a range of comparison operators:
CMPOP: (==|!=|<|>|<=|>=|in|not in)

But when I tried to use <= while testing environment markers, I get an error about an invalid marker. The same exact expression with s/</=/ works.

If this is the wrong place to file marker bugs - please point me at the right place :)

I believe you mean PEP-426 rather than PEP-427

This seems to come from https://bitbucket.org/pypa/setuptools/src/b6e4e89191a674855e06114e8072f2449ef53347/pkg_resources/__init__.py?at=default#cl-1481

I've created https://bitbucket.org/pypa/setuptools/pull-request/134/expand-the-range-of-valid-operators-to/diff which attempts to address this issue.

It certainly avoids the invalid marker error message, but I'm not certain if this does everything we need to make sure that the markers get fully parsed and requirements installed

Add tests capturing expectation for range comparison operators (Ref #380).

I accepted Pull Request #134, but it causes a test to fail:

    >>> print(im("'x' < 'y'"))
    '<' operator not allowed in environment markers

I don't know why this test was added. Was it there to describe the behavior as implemented or was it there to prescribe some known violation with the spec? Since there's no comment in the code, I'm going to assume the former and simply remove the failing test.

I should note also that one's expectation is probably violated with a PEP426 marker such as "full_python_version > 2.7.3" as "2.7.10" will fail for that. I'll add that as a test.

Add test capturing possible violation in expectation due to new Python 2.7.10 release. Ref #380.

Hrm.

I'm sorry. I said above that "I'm not certain this does everything we need".

I probably should have come back back to say that I'm now certain it doesn't. It does, in my testing, avoid the error being raised (although it seems other people don't even see that) - but it doesn't result in requirements that have these markers being processed and the requirements being installed. I'm still trying to track down why that's the case.

The old behaviour at least warned people about env markers that wouldn't work; the new behaviour silently drops requirements that look like they should work, which is arguably worse.

If we can't find a way to make this work properly, perhaps it'd be better to revert to the old behaviour?

I'd rather not back out the change. I do see the argument that it doesn't fail fast, and could, but I'd rather work toward an implementation that does what you want. I've successfully used the markers feature for selectively and declaratively requiring a dependency. See backports.unittest_mock for an example. Through the 'extras', mock will be required, but only on Python 2. When I can rely on Setuptools 17.1, I can change that dependency to python_version < "3.3". Can you open a new ticket describing what is happening and how that differs from your expectation?

I defer to your experience re: backing out the change.

Happily, a colleague seems to have tracked down the source of the problems I was seeing - and it seems that the fix is to apply the same patch as pull request 134 to the pkg_resources vendored into pip. So there doesn't seem to be any need to do anything more here :)
