Somewhere -- maybe here -- you must invoke the initiate_computation method in MyFunctions. Otherwise it cannot wish to call the Protocol.some_function method. If __init__ is that place, then do it like this: myfunc = MyFunctions() myfunc.initiate_computation(self, "code...") Here self is a reference to the Protocol object, exactly what initiate_computation needs in the MyFunctions class. By the way, if MyFunctions only contain functions, then you might not need a class at all. Python is much more free-form than, say, Java in this way -- in Java you must put "static" functions into a class, whereas you can just put them in a module in Python. I hope that makes some sense, otherwise please ask again :-) -- Martin Geisler _______________________________________________ viff-devel mailing list (http://viff.dk/) firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.viff.dk/listinfo.cgi/viff-devel-viff.dk
