You should take a look at testfixtures ;-) http://pypi.python.org/pypi/testfixtures Specifically, the @replace decorator for one test or the Replacer (to use in setUp and tearDown) NB: Make sure you replace it in the module where's *used*, not the module where it comes from... cheers, Chris -- Simplistix - Content Management, Zope & Python Consulting - http://www.simplistix.co.uk _______________________________________________ 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 )
