free-zombiethat only works for objects designed to work like that
SpCombplastic_wrap: by what things you stick into the quotes after your class name
free-zombiethat includes almost only basic built-in types
Brendplastic_wrap, it's dependent on the order of superclasses in your class ...(...) lines, but basically no, you can't control it
SpCombfree-zombie: lists, dicts, strings and ints, should be enough for anyone
plastic_wrap: you can control the contents of it, but the ordering of the stuff in it goes a bit weird once you have multiple circular inheritance or whatnot
actionBrend designs a metaclass that reprs classes by extracting their source code from the file
Brenddesigns a metaclass that reprs classes by extracting their source code from the file
free-zombieif that's enough, then yes, repr/eval works. if something else gets in, even by accident, farkes everything up
actionfree-zombie prefers YAML, but that's just free-zombie
free-zombieprefers YAML, but that's just free-zombie
Brendfree-zombie, man you are totally sarcasm-proof
kbrooksfree-zombie, fucks?
SpCombBrend: hey, I've done this urllib.quote(repr(args)); eval(urllib.unquote(msg)) before!
BrendSpComb, :(
kbrooksSpComb, that won't work.
SpCombkbrooks: pseudocode
actionBrend stores data by sending AMP commands into a series of routers that bounce them around in circles indefinitely

actionZalamander thinks storing serialized data in a database is a terrible mistake
Zalamanderthinks storing serialized data in a database is a terrible mistake
free-zombiekbrooks: kinda ;-) I prefer to think of it as a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minced_oath
BrendZalamander, heck, storing _data_ in a database is probably a terrible mistake
SpCombdepends on the data
kbrookswhat is a "database", btw
actionfree-zombie considers the file system a data base, but doesn't consider that something people would understand
free-zombieconsiders the file system a data base, but doesn't consider that something people would understand
Brendkbrooks: Like a base, but it belongs to the US government instead of the Koreans
bytecolora .ini file
kbrooksBrend, be serious.
haysfree-zombie: who are you, hans reiser?
Brendkbrooks: well, ask a silly question ...
kbrooks: In the context of this conversation "database" is probably "relational database".
free-zombiehays: no, I am not. the file system is a hieranchical database (can't spell it)
SpCombfree-zombie: depending on what kind of data you store in it, that can be a horrible idea
haysheirarchical probably
free-zombiehays: sounds good.
SpCombI'd rather store things like images in the filesystem rather than as a blob, but not something like IRC logs
Brendkbrooks: With the exception of free-zombie, who has taken this opportunity to show how irrelevantly clever he is
kbrooksBrend, heh
haysdoes python have a generic parser?
BrendSpComb: Right. There's something fundamentally silly about sticking string representations of structured data into a system designed to hold structured data
stepzhasn't someone written a RDBMS-FUSE adapter?
Brendhays: pyparsing, kinda, and a bunch of others, kinda
bytecolorhays, not as part of the lib
