Why did attach become stupid?

asked 2013-06-23 14:42:07 +0100

Recently, the attach feature poses two problems.

  1. It says that "attach" is deprecated and that we should use "%attach". Why?
  2. The real problem: "attach" and "%attach" now create a huge amount of stupid files in the folder. Why? How to prevent this?
  3. How could the Sage developers let such an annoying thing make it in a Sage release and, worse, not correct it in newer versions?

Thanks in advance!

Sage developers are aware of this regression. Please follow ticket 14169 and ticket 14523, and give some positive feedback in the tickets if you want/can.

Its not fixed because YOU did nothing to help review the ticket ;-)

The preferred syntax is


since it is also valid Python syntax. Similar to the print operator going away in Python 3 and being replaced by an ordinary function.
