Wow!!!!! publisher.py patched with this function work fine!!!!

class File:
    """ Like a file, but also has headers and filename
    def __init__(self, field):
        # steal all the file-like methods
        #for m in field.file.__methods__:
        #for m in dir(field.file):    #dont' work
        for m in self.sim_methods(field.file):
            self.__dict__[m] = getattr(field.file, m)

        self.headers = field.headers
        self.filename = field.filename
    def sim_methods(self,obj):
        from types import BuiltinMethodType   #parte aggiunta
        return filter(lambda s, t=obj:
           type(getattr(t, s)) == BuiltinMethodType, dir(obj))

thanks all

You wrote a few days back:

Having to downgrade seems a bit extreme [;-)

I don't know much about the publisher.py module, never having used it.
But if you do this import:


from types import BuiltinMethodType


then this function:


def sim_methods(obj):
    return filter(lambda s, t=obj:
           type(getattr(t, s)) == BuiltinMethodType,


works under both 2.0 and 2.2.1 (I don't have a 2.1 any more) and delivers
the list of methods that it seems you want, looking at the publisher.py
source.  If you're not a fan of the functional programming approach, then
a list comprehension:


def sim_methods(obj):
    return [m for m in dir(obj)
                   if type(getattr(obj, m)) == BuiltinMethodType]


works just as well.

You could just replace the 'for m in field.file.__methods__:'


'for m in sim_methods(field.file):'

Hope this helps.
