[Tutor] Your dog Scope bit me!
Mon, 20 Aug 2001 23:16:45 -0400 (EDT)
I'm trying to create a function that will retrieve a pickled dictionary.
Python doesn't complain about the following; but I don't "get" anything
and no "upc" is listed in dir().
"""retrieves upc dictionary as upc"""
print "UPC Dictionary retrieved"
I'm assuming I have a scope problem. Guess I don't understand all I
should about scopes. How do I run this from an interactive session so
that I'm able to use the dictionary?
Entering each of the lines in an interactive session retrieves the
dictionary; but then I'm not in the "scope" of the function.
