I will be glad to have it uploaded to nonvisual development. But be careful to 
take the correct one, that is from my drop box link. Please also do let me know 
if the header comments regarding its usage is not descriptive enough. That 
might also need a polish, for handling the potential runtime errors it may 
encounter. So feel free to modify it or let me know of any change you may

  This would be a splendid addition to Nonvisual Development and its freshly 
community-driven approach. I'll put it up there if noone else wants to, but I 
figured I'd give its author a heads up first.

    def myFunc()

    use it from the command line like this: your_script_name

    The output script is

    Note that the # sign is not necessary.
    It is also easy to modify the new line character(s) to get adapted to your 
OS/Editor, from within the script.
    One more thing you have to be cautious about, is the end of your file to be 
ended with a new line.
    I haven't tested it so much. Up to now, it has worked fine for me. Feel 
free to change it as you want, and do let me know of any potential

      > I concur that the Python indentation is hard to deal, but at least for 
writing the Python scripts, I developed a simple script for removing the braces 
or whatever start/end markers is required to use for better readability, with 
the corresponding indent level. It is very short and easy for my initial Python 
scripting practises. If you would like, I will be glad to send it along.

      IN which language is your script ? I'm interested.
      I found a python modification named pybrace. In fact, that's the type of 
thing I'm looking for, because a script so modified would have a syntax 
relatively close to other scripting languages (js, lua, ruby, etc.). The 
problem with the braces if not to confuse with dictionnaries...
      I could perhaps adapt something to use with my 6pad editor. Thank you if 
you can send it to me.

      I don't doubt about its capabilities, its popularity is a kind of proof. 
The only thing which stops me in going further is that indentation problem.
