enhancing decorator signatures

Discussion in 'Python' started by Diez B. Roggisch, Aug 6, 2008.

  1. Hi,

    I'm using Michele S's decorator-module to create decorators with matching
    signatures, for better error-catching.

    However, I now want to enrich the signature of a generic wrapper so that the
    new function will accept more parameters (keyword only). These additional
    parameters are consumed by the wrapper and not passed to the decorated

    So something like this would be cool:

    def some_decorator(f, **args, **kwargs):
    bar = kwargs.pop("bar")
    return f(**args, **kwargs)

    Anybody has done something like this?

    notfound= object()
    def some_decorator(f, *args, **kwargs):
    bar = kwargs.pop("bar",notfound)
    return f(*args, **kwargs)

    Then you would declare your function:

    def funA( x, y, z ):
    do( x, y )
    make( z )

    And be able to call it:

    funA( 0, 1, 2, bar= 'what' )

    so some_decorator consumes 'bar' and preserves x, y, and z. It's
    working fine. What did you want to ask about?

    --Roggisch has plonked me in the past. Can someone reply to this
    message to the group so they'll see it?--
