Backport of the python 3.X `range` class

Project description

Backports the python 3.X range class as a replacement for python 2.X range functions. The range class is similar to xrange in that its values are computed on demand - however, the range class is actually a lazy sequence: it supports indexing, membership testing and other sequence features.


This implementation provides all features introduced and documented in python 3.3.


  • Features are tested against the Python 3.6 unittests for range.

  • The following python versions are tested explicitly:

    • python (aka CPython): 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5
    • pypy: pypy2, pypy3
  • There is no official support for Cython yet.

  • Some features depending on language features or other modules may not be available:

    • Comparing range against other types does not throw TypeError in python 2.X.
