You can use VB, or IronRuby or Managed JScript. But Python, no way!!!!!!

I'm pretty sure there isn't - that's a basic 'feature' of Python itself:
code blocks are defined by whitespace.  
(one of many bug-reduction syntax features)

If you're working in VS, you'll often spend a little time highlighting a
block of rows then pulling down Edit - Advanced - Increase/Decrease
Indent 
when refactoring.  
Other editors (I'm fond of Crimson) make that even easier.

Maybe Dino and Team can / have implement(ed) something special so IP can
recognize blocks defined by curly-braces, but it would be rather
anti-pythonic to do so.  Why do you need to?

Subject: [IronPython] Using blocks separators instead of indentation


Hello,

Is there a way to use code blocks (like { and } in other languages)
instead
of indentation?

Thanks,
Ori
