A forest of comments starts with multiple top-level comments.
Each of these comments can be a tree of replies.
Return the comment at position index in the list.
This method is to be used like an array access, such as:
first_comment = submission.comments
Alternatively, the presence of this method enables one to iterate over all top
level comments, like so:
for comment in submission.comments:
Initialize a CommentForest instance.
submission – An instance of Subreddit that is the parent of the
comments – Initialize the Forest with a list of comments (default: None).
Return the number of top-level comments in the forest.
Return a flattened list of all Comments.
This list may contain MoreComments instances if replace_more()
was not called first.
Update the comment forest by resolving instances of MoreComments.
limit – The maximum number of MoreComments instances to replace.
Each replacement requires 1 API request. Set to None to have no limit,
or to 0 to remove all MoreComments instances without
additional requests (default: 32).
threshold – The minimum number of children comments a
MoreComments instance must have in order to be replaced.
MoreComments instances that represent “continue this thread” links
unfortunately appear to have 0 children. (default: 0).
A list of MoreComments instances that were not replaced.
For example, to replace up to 32 MoreComments instances of a
submission = reddit.submission("3hahrw")
Alternatively, to replace MoreComments instances within the replies of
a single comment try:
comment = reddit.comment("d8r4im1")
This method can take a long time as each replacement will discover at most
20 new Comment or MoreComments instances. As a result,
consider looping and handling exceptions until the method returns
successfully. For example:
print("Handling replace_more exception")
If this method is called, and the comments are refreshed, calling this
method again will result in a DuplicateReplaceException.
