Source code for future.standard_library

Python 3 reorganized the standard library (PEP 3108). This module exposes
several standard library modules to Python 2 under their new Python 3

It is designed to be used as follows::

    from future import standard_library

And then these normal Py3 imports work on both Py3 and Py2::

    import builtins
    import copyreg
    import queue
    import reprlib
    import socketserver
    import winreg    # on Windows only
    import html, html.parser, html.entites
    import http, http.client, http.server
    import http.cookies, http.cookiejar
    import urllib.parse, urllib.request, urllib.response, urllib.error, urllib.robotparser
    import xmlrpc.client, xmlrpc.server

    import _thread
    import _dummy_thread
    import _markupbase

    from itertools import filterfalse, zip_longest
    from sys import intern
    from collections import UserDict, UserList, UserString
    from collections import OrderedDict, Counter     # even on Py2.6
    from subprocess import getoutput, getstatusoutput
    from subprocess import check_output              # even on Py2.6

(The renamed modules and functions are still available under their old
names on Python 2.)

This is a cleaner alternative to this idiom (see

        import queue
    except ImportError:
        import Queue as queue

We don't currently support these modules, but would like to::

    import dbm
    import dbm.dumb
    import dbm.gnu
    import  # on Py33
    import pickle     # should (optionally) bring in cPickle on Python 2

# Make a dedicated logger; leave the root logger to be configured
# by the application.
