I'm reading the Python 3.5.2 documentation at:
  
   https://docs.python.org/3/tutorial/errors.html#handling-exceptions

which shows the following example:

   >>> def this_fails():
   ...     x = 1/0
   ...
   >>> try:
   ...     this_fails()
   ... except ZeroDivisionError as err:
   ...     print('Handling run-time error:', err)
   ...
   Handling run-time error: int division or modulo by zero 

Running the code as a script produces:

   $ python3 -V
   Python 3.5.2
   $ python3 p.py
   Handling run-time error: division by zero

   $ python2 -V
   Python 2.7.12
   $ python2 p.py
   ('Handling run-time error:', ZeroDivisionError('integer division or modulo by zero',))
   
The same output is listed for 3.6 and 3.7 tutorials but I don't have those 
versions installed on my system.
