sage: edit?

presently yields

          sage: import sage.misc.edit_module as m
          sage: m.set_edit_template("vi -c {line} {file}")

whereas the last line should read

         sage: m.set_edit_template("vi -c ${line} ${file}")

i.e., $ gets stripped from EXAMPLE text where it should not.

$ signs are stripped from docstrings in sage/misc/, as part of an effort to convert LaTeX math markup to plain text.

Perhaps the right fix is to notice doctests, and disable these modifications for that part of the docstring.

  • Summary changed from Stripping $ from documentation to [with patch] Stripping $ from documentation

Changelog for the patch:

683,989: add 'nodetex' directive to docstrings: doesn't strip (la)tex code from docstrings.

The first line of a docstring is parsed as a comma-separated list of directives (no whitespace in directives!). For example:


If 'nodetex' is one of the directives, then no (la)tex code is stripped from the docstring. The model was the 'nodoctest' directive already found at the top of a file.
