Spaces

uPy requires spaces between literal numbers and keywords, CPy doesn’t

Sample code:

try:
    print(eval('1and 0'))
except SyntaxError:
    print('Should have worked')
try:
    print(eval('1or 0'))
except SyntaxError:
    print('Should have worked')
try:
    print(eval('1if 1else 0'))
except SyntaxError:
    print('Should have worked')
CPy output: uPy output:
0
1
1
/bin/sh: 1: ../unix/micropython: not found

Unicode

Unicode name escapes are not implemented

Sample code:

print("\N{LATIN SMALL LETTER A}")
CPy output: uPy output:
a
