Description (last modified by vbraun)

Its confusing to users. Why are we exposing our logging system to end users?

Stretch goal: Use Python logging instead of reinventing the logging wheel.

Wrong command! It should be set_verbose(-1).

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by vbraun

  • Description modified (diff)
  • Milestone changed from sage-duplicate/invalid/wontfix to sage-6.6
  • Status changed from positive_review to needs_work
  • Summary changed from cannot turn off plot warnings with verbose() to Remove verbose from the global namespace

I suggest to repurpose the ticket, see new description. The old description follows:

What use is sage.misc.misc.verbose("WARNING:... in when no possible verbosity level will turn off the output?

sage: verbose(level=-1)
verbose -1 (<module>) 
sage: plot(sqrt(x),(x,-1,3))
verbose 0 (2691:, generate_plot_points) WARNING: When plotting, failed to evaluate function at 51 points.
verbose 0 (2691:, generate_plot_points) Last error message: 'math domain error'
