Find divisions in Python code

Project description


Sheldon Cooper ALWAYS points out what (he thinks) is wrong with people and their work

What is it?

shldn is a console-application that finds all the division operations in Python source code to facilitate transitioning Python 2 code to Python 3. It uses Python's AST module to process and parse the code. It, then traverses the abstract syntax tree to find all the division operations, and prints them in a normal or more readable format to the console.


  • Python 2 won't be supported past 2020

    tic tac tic tac...

  • Division in Python 3 always returns a float; whereas division in Python 2 can return an int

  • Critical for large Python 2 code bases that perform division operations


  • Python 3


Method 1: Install from Pypi Method

pip3 install shldn

Or, if you use pipenv,

pipenv install shldn

Method 2: Clone repository

Move to the desired directory to install shldn

git clone


Method 1 (Installed from Pypi):

In environment installed:

  1. Check if installed
pip list
  1. Execute
shldn [-h] [-hr] [-r] path

Method 2 (Cloned repo):

  1. Execute
python3 [-h] [-hr] [-r] path


positional arguments:
  path                  path to python source file(s)

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -hr, --human_readable
                        set for friendlier output
  -r, --recursive       recursively check python files in path
