From: Peng Yu on 26 Jul 2010 18:20 This webpage http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0008/ recommends the following. It looks to me that both styles are fine. Could anybody let me know what the rationale is behind this recommendation? - Use spaces around arithmetic operators: Yes: i = i + 1 submitted += 1 x = x * 2 - 1 hypot2 = x * x + y * y c = (a + b) * (a - b) No: i=i+1 submitted +=1 x = x*2 - 1 hypot2 = x*x + y*y c = (a+b) * (a-b) -- Regards, Peng From: Thomas Jollans on 26 Jul 2010 19:00 On 07/27/2010 12:20 AM, Peng Yu wrote:> This webpage http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0008/ recommends the > following.

There is no rationale, except if you accept "easier to read", "looks better", or "that's what Guido has been doing for years". > > - Use spaces around arithmetic operators: > > Yes: > > i = i + 1 > submitted += 1 > x = x * 2 - 1 > hypot2 = x * x + y * y > c = (a + b) * (a - b) > > No: > > i=i+1 > submitted +=1 > x = x*2 - 1 > hypot2 = x*x + y*y > c = (a+b) * (a-b) > From: rantingrick on 26 Jul 2010 19:06 On Jul 26, 5:20 pm, Peng Yu wrote:> This webpagehttp://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0008/recommends the > following.

Guido is God and if you don't follow his words then you will be tortured. His favorite means is by forcing you to wear Dutch wooden shoes every day whist programming Ruby! ;-) From: Martin P.

Well specifically their made from wood and wood is a very hard substance. Also i did not go into detail but he makes sure to pick shoes that are three sizes too small.
