Dear List,

I'm stuck on trying to write a generic 'report' function:

Class SomeClass:
   def __init__(self,a,b):
	self.a = a
	self.b = b

   def report(self):
	for i in dir(self):
	    print self.i

<Error Traceback......>

This is where I run into problems: How do I return all of the variables
in an instance?

I'm sure I'm not the first person to ask, but I couldn't find an answer
anywhere else...
