Sorry, I have another problem here. Given this snipplet,
>>> def b(s):
... exec('print "x= " + str(x)')
>>> b('x = 10')
>>> print x
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
NameError: name 'x' is not defined
Clearly, all the objects that were declared using exec() in function b
went out of scope, is there anyway to prevent this from happening?
What I really need is this, for example, in a class,
1. a function to initialize a set of objects
2. a function which carries commands to act on the object (unknown at
3. a function to read the values of the set of objects
So, if the objects went out of scope after leaving (1), then I am rather
screwed when I'm in (2). Any remedies?
