Quick Tip: Python's noop Equivalent
Python can’t deal with empty code blocks, which may arise if you want to stub out a block but leave the implementation for later. If you have one in your code, the interpreter will give the following error:
File "foo.py", line 1 if (foo == bar): ^ IndentationError: expected an indented block
In this case, you can use the
pass operator which will do nothing but take up a line, resulting in the following code:
if (foo == bar): pass #TODO else: print "nothing to do!"
