Description
The PolyDict
class has a __richcmp__
method which just implements the default rich comparison between the underlying dicts of the PolyDict
s being compared, which in of itself is not terrible useful, especially given that it's not a meaningful comparison for relational operators.
However there is also an undocumented PolyDict.rich_compare
method which i the same as __richcmp__
but takes a key
argument (previously required, but I made it optional and renamed it to sortkey
) which can be used to provide meaningful ordering between polynomials. This is used currently in Sage in exactly one place. But this ticket shows one other example where it was useful to have. We've also polished up the documentation just a little bit.

Trivial rebase at first. But I also fixed a test that was failing on Python 2 (the p1 < p2
test) due to the differences in default comparison behavior between Python 2 and 3. Not 100% satisfied with that, and wondering if we should instead explicitly enforce ==
and !=
only.
