No completion appears when I import hashlib in IDLE and type in "hashlib." and press Tab to complete.
With any other module it works.

Ramchandra: what OS and Python version? Please always include in reports.

I verified on win7,3.2.2, with hashlib versus itertools, idlelib, heapq, trace. (On my new machine, popup is so fast I do not need <tab>.) In fact, 'hashlib.' and <tab> results in a tab to next tab position. ^<space> to <show completions> also does not work, but it does without the '.'. Some files (only builtins?) work without being imported. Everything seemed to work the same in an edit window.

hashlib.__all__ exists as a tuple. Modules without .__all__ also work.
Both cases are handled in idlelib.AutoComplete.fetch_completions().
I see nothing strange about hashlib.

Looking at, I see other problems to fix.

"This extension can complete either attribute names of file names."
/of/or/, but ^<sp> in name brings up globals list with cursor at closest name to what one has entered. Are these handled elsewhere?

# This string includes all chars that may be in a file name (without a path
# separator)
FILENAME_CHARS = string.ascii_letters + string.digits + os.curdir + "._~#$:-"
# This string includes all chars that may be in an identifier
ID_CHARS = string.ascii_letters + string.digits + "_"

FILENAME_CHARS looks Windows specific. Both definitions are obsolete. IDLE should not separately define such things if at all possible.

But 'hash' is not in the file and I see little specific to the text context. Without being able to insert print calls to see what is and is not executed, I have no idea how to proceed.

I am using Ubuntu 11.04 with Python 3.2.2 from the package reprositeries (binaries)

Attached is a patch against 3.3a0 to fix the problem. The cause of the bug is that a tuple can not be sorted and calling .sort was raising a silenced exception. The patch explicitly converts __all__ to a list.

Roger's patch solves the problem.  Thanks!  Applied to 2.7 (for 2.7.3), 3.2 (for 3.2.3), and default (for 3.3).

Thank you both. I saw the answer (hashlib.__all__ is, unusally, a tuple) but did not see how it was the answer.

BTW I wonder if setting __all__ to something but a list is valid.  I think I ran into a similar bug once and fixing __all__ fixed it.  The IDLE robustness fix is probably a good thing, but maybe we should also check the stdlib’s __all__s and the docs.

6.11 Import statement says " __all__; if defined, it must be a sequence of strings which are names defined or imported by that module."

I am tempted to open an issue to change 'sequence' to 'list', or even 'sorted sequence', but that is difficult to enforce.
