Hi,

2 quick questions.

Re pdb, if you have a 'pointer' (ie reference) to an object, is there
an easy way to dump out its contents, ie all of its members short of
writing a method that does that and then calling it?

Anyone know what is going on with the winpdb site? I haven't been able to
get to it in the last few days.

Thanks,
Esmail
