multi-value-return pattern in Python

Project Description

originally, you have:

def func():
    return 1
print func() + func()

Then you decided that func() can return some extra information but you don’t want to break previous code (or modify them one by one). It looks like

def func():
    return 1, "extra info"
value, extra = func()
print value # 1 (expected)
print extra # extra info (expected)
print func() + func() # (1, 'extra info', 1, 'extra info') (not expected, we want the previous behaviour, i.e. 2)

The previous codes (func() + func()) are broken. You have to fix it.

The solution is adapted from the answer,
