  • All files must import absolute_import from __future__.

  • If Python 2.5 is a target, any file using the with statement must also import that from __future__

    Disabled by options :option:`--2.6` and :option:`--2.7`).

  • If Python 2.7 is the target :option:`--2.7` then all files must also import unicode_literals from __future__.

  • Code cannot contain debugging print statements

    A debugging print statement is any print emitting a string that

    • optionally starts with any sequence of non-alphanumeric chars
    • an all-uppercase word followed by a colon,


    print('CONN: %r' % (connection,))     # DEBUG!
    print('The connection was lost')       # NOT DEBUG
    print('> STUPID: %r' % (obj,))        # DEBUG!
    print('>>>>> OMFG: %r !!!!' % (obj,)) # definitely DEBUG!


flakeplus is run from the commandline:

$ flakeplus dir1 .. dirN

If the target version is 2.6 and above, use the 2.6 switch:

$ flakeplus --2.6 dir1 .. dirN

If the target version is 2.7 and above, use the 2.7 switch:

$ flakeplus --2.7 dir1 .. dirN
