It works indeed, thanks a lot !

I started with python3 so I don't know how it worked before.

Can someone confirm then that any correct python 2 code works with sage? And if not, I'm still looking for a document listing the differences.

I'm trying to do a tricky function that requires a unknown number or regular argument, some default keywords argument and any number of other keyword argument.

In python, this code works:

def addplot_coordinates(*args, plus_option=False, **kwargs):

But it doesn't work with sage:

sage: def addplot_coordinates(*args, plus_option=False, **kwargs):
....:     pass
  File "<ipython-input-1-dace1b5103c9>", line 1
    def addplot_coordinates(*args, plus_option=False, **kwargs):
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I naively though that any correct python code would work with sage. I found here* that there is some «minimal syntax difference», and searching «sage python syntax difference» on a search engine does not give relevant results.

Is there a document listing all the things someone coming from python should be careful about ? Can someone give me a pointer to such a document ?

Thank you for your time.
