python3-future – Clean single-source support for Python 3 and 2 - Python 3.x

Future is the missing compatibility layer between Python 2 and Python 3. It allows one to use a single, clean Python 3.x-compatible codebase to support both Python 2 and Python 3 with minimal overhead.

The imports have no effect on Python 3. On Python 2, they shadow the corresponding builtins, which normally have different semantics on Python 3 versus 2, to provide their Python 3 semantics.

This package contains the Python 3.x module.
