Upgrade to python 3.9
HarperframeInc

I want to use a standard library function that's only available for python 3.9. How would I go about upgrading to python 3.9?

You have no power to do that. you can do that. if the repl.it team decides to, then they can. maybe give it to feedback. but for now, if they they do it, then you will get the upgrade

i suppose you can use pyenv https://github.com/pyenv/pyenv
perhaps with a bash repl you can make it install any python version then run your .py with it

@EpicGamer007 Yeah but I want a solution that's available to me right now. I don't want to have to wait (sorry I'm impatient like that)

@HarperframeInc i dont know if there is a way... go to the bash shell and try this maybe.

though read this first

@HarperframeInc Use a text editor and run your code locally. If having the most up-to-date version is necessary that's probably the best way to go. Then pip install the package you need and run the file.

@r_clarkem you perhaps do not realize that a very popular use of repl is to develop on chromebooks
