Description (last modified by )
There is a long-standing problem with substitution in that some substitutions do not work when given as equality but do work when given as dictionary.
sage: (x*pi).subs(x*pi==e) x*pi sage: (x*pi).subs({x*pi:e}) e sage: s = x.series(x,2); s 1*x + Order(x^2) sage: (x*pi).subs(x*pi==s) pi*x
It looks like that in some cases the conversion to dict switches lhs and rhs of the equation and this is because of such behaviour:
sage: x*pi==e e == pi*x sage: x == s 1*x + Order(x^2) == x

Since we cannot use the @richcmp
decorator on a cdef
class we cannot work around it but must investigate the reason for the argument switching, which is possibly in Cython.

Adding __eq__
does not work I get a Cython compile error reported at https://github.com/cython/cython/issues/2019

Replying to rws:
class A(SageObject): def __init__(self): from sage.symbolic.ring import SR self._parent = SR def __eq__(a, b): print(a, b) return True def __repr__(self): return "A" class B(A): def __eq__(a, b): print(a, b) return True def __repr__(self): return "B" sage: from sage.symbolic.tests import A,B sage: A() == B() (B, A) True versus class A(): def __init__(self): from sage.symbolic.ring import SR self._parent = SR def __eq__(a, b): print(a, b) return True def __repr__(self): return "A" class B(A): def __eq__(a, b): print(a, b) return True def __repr__(self): return "B" sage: from sage.symbolic.tests import A,B sage: A() == B() (A, B) True
I think this is just a difference between new-style and old-style classes. This has nothing to do with Cython.

Without any Cython classes involved:
sage: class A(object): ....: def __eq__(a, b): ....: print(a, b) ....: return True ....: def __repr__(self): ....: return "A" ....: ....: class B(A): ....: def __eq__(a, b): ....: print(a, b) ....: return True ....: def __repr__(self): ....: return "B" sage: A() == B() (B, A) True

Why then would class A():
not switch arguments? Anyway, this ticket either should warn if subclasses are encountered or at least add explanations to the documentation.

Okay the answer is https://stackoverflow.com/questions/54867/what-is-the-difference-between-old-style-and-new-style-classes-in-python and Python is a PITA.

The first has
A
inherit fromSageObject
the second not.
