s/seems to get/is/

But this is a really unpythonic way to do things IMHO. Either use a
try/except block (probably the most straightforward solution), or, as in
Larry's post, test for the existence of 'l_value' in locals().

My 2 cents...

python -c "print '@'.join(['.'.join([w[::-1] for w in p.split('.')]) for
p in 'onurb at xiludom.gro'.split('@')])"
