In Python, you can declare a function to accept an arbitrary number of
arguments by adding an argument that starts with * or **. A *-prefixed
argument gets a tuple of the non-keyworded arguments that follow the
declared arguments, a **-prefixed arguments gets a dictionary of
keyword:value pairs of the keyworded arguments not declared in the
argument list preceding it. For example,
def foo(a, b=2, *stuff, **morestuff):
for x in stuff:
for k in morestuff.keys():
print k, morestuff[k]
if i call
foo(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, x='a', y='b', z='c')
foo will print
4 5 6
My problem is that when I write a Script(Python) in zope, and declare a
*- or **-prefixed argument to my script, I always get an empty tuple or
dictionary. It's not that im using an undeclared argument or anything,
otherwise my script would get a runtime error. It just that the tuple
or dictionary is not given any values when I make a call with 'extra'
Does zope just not support this python feature? Should I just parse the
arguments myself from the URL?
Sorry for the confusion,
