I was working on a distribution recently where
python was mapped to
python2. It mixed me up for a bit since I was writing a script for
python3 but it ran partially under
python2. To lower confusion in the future, I think it’s a great idea to check the python version and exit if it isn’t the version you expect.
from sys import version_info, exit if version_info.major != 3: print("This script only supports Python 3") print("Curent version: " + \ str(version_info.major) + "." + \ str(version_info.minor) + "." + \ str(version_info.micro) ) print("Exiting...") exit(1)
