Multiprocessing docs contain examples, that are not valid py3k code,
mostly because of print used as a statement. Example (taken from

from multiprocessing import Process

def f(name):
    print 'hello', name

if __name__ == '__main__':
    p = Process(target=f, args=('bob',))

If no one is working on this already, than I'll start fixing this and
will present a patch in 2 or 3 days.

If you're willing to make the patch - I can review and submit. I 
appreciate it

So, after 5 days of silence I present my current status on the patch.
This patch fixes Doc/includes/mp_*.py examples, except for the fact that
I couldn't make work, but I'm still working on this

And this patch is for Doc/library/multiprocessing.rst. Still, there are
lot of issues, and as you none of you (Jesse or Richard) answered my
email, I'll post them tomorrow here. Right now, the patch. :)

Thanks - sorry I didn't reply to the mail yet, had to deal with some  
other stuff first, I should be freed up tonight

OK, then ignore the previous email, I'll send you a new one, with
updated questions.

Here is the updated version of multiprocessing.rst patch. Not much has
changes, as you can see (if you've seen the previous version, of course
;) ).
I have only one question left about multiprocessing.rst, it's about
'allow_connection_pickling' function -- should documentation cover this
function or just leave it as it is?
The only issue I still have is example, which is not
properly documented.
Jesse, I think you should review both patches and leave this issue open
until is documented. If you have any questions --
ping me on #python-dev.

btw, some of the docstrings are also outdated, e.g. Pool.imap,,
etc. Should I handle this one too?

that's your call Andrii
msg70224 - (view) Author: Andrii V. Mishkovskyi (mishok13) Date: 2008-07-24 20:48
OK, I'll work on this too. :) Patch should be ready by Monday.
