You can. You must, however, be aware that such classes are not picklable. The source of "External Method"s are read in ("execfile"d) and classes defined therein appear as if defined in the module "__main__". This confused the pickling mechanis as "__main__" is unable to recreate these classes. -- Dieter _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
