This one is a bit neater than the other ordered dict in here, using generators in places where it can, and plays nicely with deepcopy.

not compatible with pprint.

Traceback (most recent call last):

AttributeError: 'generator' object has no attribute 'sort'



Any solution?

Problems. There are some problems with this implementation.

values() and items() must return a list.

since iterkeys() and __iter__() methods are not implemented, for k in d: returns keys in the any order.

Thanks guys. Thanks for the feedback, I've updated the recipe which should sort those problems I hope.

items(), append function. maybe you wanted to write:

items.append((i, self[i]))

rather than

items.append(i, self[i])

passing 2 parameters fails to match function signature.
