so i started coding in python inside sage. yay.

this is my code that bombs:

def cable_from_pc_list(pc_list):
 xo, xd, zo, zd = var('xo xd zo zd')
 o, d = var('o d')
 o = vector([xo, zo])
 d = vector([xd, zd])

for i in pc_list:
    o = i['origin']
    d = i['dest']
    q = i['charge']
    s1 = o - d
    s2 = -s1/abs(s1) * (R^2/abs(s1))
    show(d + s2)

and surprisingly it throws this error:

sage: load('/home/andreas/src/dissertation/analytical/demo.sage')
  File "<string>", line 8
    for i in pc_list:
IndentationError: unindent does not match any outer indentation level

This is in a single file, the only code, in a fresh sage process. There are no tabs in that file, and the indention is consistent (4 spaces).

i googled for python help and found out about the "set up your environment and editor correctly", which i made sure of. I use emacs and with help of whitespace-mode i made sure of the indention and tab-freeness. Please help me fix this.

the indentation is messed up above, but the problem was that the lines before the problematic line were indentet with five spaces, and then the for in in ... line was indentet with four.
