I am trying to use the "print" function in a .sage script, so I have added the line
from __future__ import print_function
as the first line to be included in my .sage file. Unfortunately, when running `sage test.sage`, Sage preparses the document and creates an auxiliary file "test.sage.py", which makes an import, then predefines some constants, and finally adds my preparsed code. As a consequence, the `from __future__ import print_function` is not the first line, and I get the following error message:
File "test.sage.py", line 6
from __future__ import print_function
SyntaxError: from __future__ imports must occur at the beginning of the file
Here is a MWE. The file "test.sage" containing:
from __future__ import print_function
print(1+1)
is preparsed to "test.sage.py" containing:
# This file was *autogenerated* from the file test.sage
from sage.all_cmdline import * # import sage library
_sage_const_1 = Integer(1)
from __future__ import print_function
print(_sage_const_1 +_sage_const_1 )
Of course, I could manually add this line to the .sage.py file and then execute it, but this could be tedious in my case for two reasons: 1. I have a lot of files which I have to modify and rerun every 15 minutes. 2. I also need this process to be automatic to be able to execute it with automatically generated script and even sageTeX.
Thanks in advance for your answers!dsejasWed, 24 Apr 2019 12:14:49 -0500https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46342/
