Python Question

So what exactly does “from __future__ import barry_as_FLUFL” do?

I understand it's an inside joke that's meant to stay (just like “

from __future__ import braces
”), but what exactly does it do?


It's related to PEP 0401: BDFL Retirement

Barry refers to Barry Warsaw, a well-known Python developer. The from __future__ import barry_as_FLUFL basically replaces the != operator with <>.
