Subject: [Zope] How do I eval a variable within the acquisition path?
I apologize for the question (the zope area of my brain must need
coffee) but I can't find the answer in the zope book or in any of the
scripts posted to the zope cookbook.
I want to use a variable in a acquisition path.
So for example, from the zope book on scripts, imagine that
vaccinateplan() printed out a specific animals vaccination plan.
Now instead of saying 'LargeAnimals' and 'hippo' like so:
I want to do like this:
category = REQUEST.form['category']
animal = REQUEST.form['animal']
but I get an Attribute Error. How do I eval a variable within the
any items in a url after python script name will be placed into REQUEST.
if there is a python script called 'ptst' in the folder 'folderx'
then the url: www.xyz.com/folderx/ptst/a/b/c
will result in the python script "ptst" being run and the following entry
will be in REQUEST:
traverse_subpath ['a', 'b', 'c']
