Sometimes I include functions as members in order to encapsulate them with the rest of the class. Is this really a problem?

Being new to pylint, I have a lot to learn.

Please can someone with more experience give me some guidance?

I have a line of code which sets a string variable from a call to a class method.
The string is not intended to be modified within the scope of the function.

PRIKEY = p_database.get_key()

I made it upper case because it won't be changed.

C0103 says it doesn't comply with snake_case.

Do I really have to make it PRI_KEY to be snaky enough?

Exactly this is known to lead to endless loops. See /a/18208725/164233 on stackoverflow.

I have a python program I'd like to be able to run on both python2 and python3. All my print statements use parens, so they are forward and backward compatible. I'd like to turn off C0325, but just for 'print' statements. Is that possible?

A style I have been using lately is to access the


object. This makes my code more portable, not subject to copy-paste errors as this lint code lends itself to. For this reason, I add this message to my list of ignored lint codes.

Note that "parens" is short for "parentheses", the plural of "parenthesis".

Expressions cannot be "surrounded" by a single parenthesis, only by a pair of parentheses.

("Parenthesis" is pronounced "pah - wren - thuh - siss"; "parentheses" is pronounced "pah - wren - thuh - seas".)

It is trying to tell you that there is no point in using a lambda at all.

Instead of writing your code like this:

results = " ".join( x: save_and_show(x)).collect())

You should write it like this:

results = " ".join(

It just assumes that all the values that are in the rdd will be the same as all the values in the function.

The name of this error is no-member, so can be disabled on a single line with # pylint: disable=no-member

Used when an except clause doesn’t specify exceptions type to catch.

One thing worth to mention is that function/method arguments are also local variables.
If you get this message for function with say 5 arguments, but count only 12 local variables, then you have forgotten to count the arguments too.
