That was my original plan. However, I am trying to cast my program
along object-oriented lines.
I am writing a Python program to manage a SQL database. I wish to
represent database tables by object classes, and table rows by
instances of classes. Object attributes correspond to table columns.
A SQL query causes object instantiation; since there will be an
unknown number of query results, I'm looking for a way to generate
arbitrary numbers of instances. I had thought to package the
query-objects into lists and iterate over them; each object in the
list can be processed by invoking its methods.
Is this a doomed plan? Is there a better way, or a standard solution
for this problem?
