Well, no, it isn't really, since it starts with _. However, python do not in itself enforce privacy, so therefore you *can* call it. But by starting it with _ it is private by convention. Zope also implements some of this privacy, so you can't call it from Python scripts and so on. _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
