Attributeerror

extreme newbie question:

I have a filename.py file with an attribute named a.
I`s a dictionary example, and when I start the interpreter
and call the attribute its value prints out fine.

Then I change the name of the attribute from a to b and save
filename.py

Calling the attribute now produces an errormessage:
Attributeerror: 'module has no attribute 'b'

This irritates me. Why does it happen?

Did you quit & restart the interpreter after changing the .py file?
Unless you explicitly say 'reload(filenam e)' to update the module, Python will
not care about changes made to the file (during a single interpreter session).

Hi, how can you list the attributes of an object if you catch an AttributeError? I couldn't find a reference in the exception object, which points to the object. I want to call dir() on the object to list the user the known attributes.
