I don't have an answer, but I am also hoping to get some advice on the best way to get what in a Z2 PythonScript is called 'traverse_subpath'. Chris Withers and I were both asking about this back on Dec 15 in the "What's the rationale of @@?" thread (http://mail.zope.org/pipermail/zope3-users/2005-December/001684.html), but I didn't see an answer. Still haven't figured it out for myself, still hoping for some help. -- Wade Leftwich Ithaca, NY _______________________________________________ Zope3-users mailing list Zope3firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope3-users
