print "1:", sys.exc_info()
print "2:", sys.exc_info()
print "3:", sys.exc_info()
1: (None, None, None)This is not how I would expect it to work.
2: (<class exceptions.SystemExit ... )
3: (<class exceptions.SystemExit ... )
Upon closer inspection of the sys module's documentation:
exc_info()This contradicts to my common sense, but it is the way it is, so I'll have to find another solution for the problem at hand.
This function returns a tuple of three values that give information about the exception that is currently being handled.
Here, 'handling an exception' is defined as 'executing or having executed an except clause.'
