@aloof-angle-91616: sorry for the miscommunication on https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/pull/7015 ... i wasn't reading as closely as i should have.

neither was i -- very little work was lost and i 3000% agree that a single
yield
is better and wasn't making clear the progress of everything

the difference between
yield Get(...)
and
yield AnythingElse
is key
i missed that you were suggesting requiring a
return
for all LHSless yields. and Daniel's suggestion was something else
sorry about that.

take another look i think...it's subtle

just disallowing yields without assignment except at the end of a statement body is clear i think

that's what i wanted and i was just trying to satisfy the populace who seemed to consider it less pythonic

well, his comment points out that there are valid cases for a LHSless yield in other places
(doing an early return, basically)

yes
the error message i'm adding says
Copy code
A yield in an @rule without an assignment is equivalent to a return, and we
currently require that it comes at the end of a series of statements.
Use `_ = yield Get(...)` if you wish to yield control to the engine and discard the result.

ah. and by "end of a series of statements", you mean either a nested block or the method body itself

correct

"luckily" this always comes in the form of the
body
or
orelse
attrs
modulo a
finally
block which i was about to add a comment for
would we want to allow returning in a
finally
? i guess that's allowed
ok so that too

well, this might be a reason to do it the way daniel was suggesting... *shrug

i should have done that immediately once i realized it was orthogonal work
i also found a 3rdparty lib that does the necessary line/col offset bookkeeping to make error messages much better and will push a diff after the above passes ci
hm. it appears i accidentally pushed it to the same branch
reverting that now
