    Hi all;

    As my starter into Python I have a small project using pullparser.py

    My problem is testing what is coming back from a def() in
    I bet this is me not understanding something in Python.

    I do
    tk = p.get_token()
    print tk

    and get:-
    1 Token('data', '\n \n\n', None)
    2 Token('comment', '#include virtual="/software/main/inc/warning.inc"
    ', None)
    3 Token('data', '\n\n', None)
    4 Token('startendtag', 'meta', [('name', 'DC.Rights'), ('content',
    'Copyright (c) 2004 by IBM Corporation')])
    5 Token('data', '\n', None)
    6 Token('startendtag', 'meta', [('name', 'Security'), ('content',
    7 Token('data', '\n', None)
    8 Token('startendtag', 'meta', [('name', 'Robots'), ('content',
    9 Token('data', '\n', None)

    I wanna
    "if (tk????? is None): continue"

    More generally, how do I know what is being returned from a def()?

    Pointers/Advice pls.

    It looks like the function call is returning a Token
    object and that the Token object has three fields? You need
    to go into the pullparser.py file and find out what "p" is -
    not shown in your example. When the type of p is known,
    find out out what p.get_token() is doing.
