I think there's something else going on here .. I just tried it and it
worked for me:
>>> class boop:
... def __init__(self):
... self.thing1 = "a"
... self.thing2 = "b"
... self.thing3 = "c"
... def output(self,fout):
... print >> fout, self.thing1, self.thing2, self.thing3
>>> foo = boop()
a b c
dunno if that helps or not ..
(of course, if you make silly mistakes like I do, you might accidentally
type "none" instead of "None" .. that'll fail with a NameError)
