wrong-tuple-length-version-comparison (PYI005)#

Derived from the flake8-pyi linter.

What it does#

Checks for Python version comparisons that compare against a tuple of the wrong length.

Why is this bad?#

Stub files support simple conditionals to test for differences in Python versions and platforms. When comparing against sys.version_info, avoid comparing against tuples of the wrong length, which can lead to unexpected behavior.


import sys

if sys.version_info[:2] == (3,):

Use instead:

import sys

if sys.version_info[0] == 3:
