Issue #233 wontfix

Trailing blank on doctest boolean should be stripped, or include quotes in error report

Jeff Pittman avatarJeff Pittman created an issue

In a browser test such as:

  >>> browser.open(testing.BASE_URL + '/software-collection/')
  >>> pos = browser.contents.index
  >>> pos("item one") > pos("item two")
  True

if you have a trailing blank at the end of True, you will get an error like:

Expected:
    True 
Got:
    True

which is hard to see.

    i guess _pytest/doctest.py needs to instrument doctest running to ignore trailing whitespace. i am not a doctest user myself, are you up for a little patch?

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
