Hmmm... you may want to modify the print statements slightly to make it
more clear which of the two print statements are being displayed. That
is, I'd recommend you distinguish the debug statements by putting some
kind of mark, like:
for item in function1(args):
object = class()
object.variable = value
print "inner", object # debug
print "outer", object #debug
As the code stands, it's not clear that 'condition' is ever set to true.
When you mention that:
> Any way, the debug lines both print "<__main__.CLASSNAME instance at
> ADDRESS>" like they should, but the addresses never match up.
there is one alternative explanation for what you're seeing: it's possible
that all of the print statements are coming off the outer print statement
alone, and that neither the 'function2()' nor 'condition' branches are
I just want to make sure you're testing what you think you're testing.
Best of wishes to you!
