#23219 closed defect (fixed)

py26-mechanize is currently unusable

Reported by: yacoob@… Owned by: krischik@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.8.2
Keywords: Cc:
Port: py26-mechanize

Description (last modified by skymoo (Adam Mercer))

Current version of mechanize is 0.1.9. This version doesn't play too good with python 2.6:

>>> from mechanize import Browser
>>> br = Browser()
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/site-packages/mechanize/", line 206, in open
    return self._mech_open(url, data)
  File "/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/site-packages/mechanize/", line 232, in _mech_open
    response =, request, data)
  File "/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/site-packages/mechanize/", line 175, in open
    req = meth(req)
  File "/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/site-packages/mechanize/", line 450, in http_request
  File "/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/site-packages/mechanize/", line 395, in read
    robotparser._debug("allow all")
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute '_debug'

This is known error which was fixed in next version. I've tested 0.1.11 and it works fine. Can you please bump the version in macports?

I can confirm this error still exists using Python 2.6.6 with mechanize 0.1.9. Any update on this? Thanks.
