Re: Storing a function

En Sun, 25 May 2008 18:00:12 -0300, Kuros <ku*********@gm ail.comescribió :
Hi,
Hoping I could get some help with a python question.

I want to be able to store the code for a single function in a .py file,
such as:

def test():
print "Test"

From within a Python script, I would like to be able to get a handler so I
can do something like:

handler.test()
The "handler" is called a "module" and is created from the .py file by using import...
I want to be able to store the handlers in a blob in a SQLite DB.
So store the .py file...
Essentially, I want to store a compiled version of a function. I have tried
using compile() and exec, and while it sort of works, it seems to import the
code into the global namespace. I can do:

x = compile(file.re ad(), "<x>", 'exec')
exec x
test()

and it calls test, but I may have several functions with the same name, all
read from different files. So I need to be able to do handler.test().
If you don't want to store the .py, store the compiled module .pyc
If you still want to create and manage your own fake version of modules, use an explicit namespace:

ns = {}
compiled = compile(...)
exec compiled in ns
test = ns['test']
test()

I've looked all over but can't find a solid answer. I've got a function that runs from a View and when the function runs the first time it is calculating a Temperature for a group of Formulas. What I want to do is calculate this temperature in the UDF on the first pass and store it somewhere (table, global variable etc.). On every execution after that I'd like to use the value stored so I don't have to recalculate the value again for...

To your actual problem... Why do you wanna do this anyway? If you want to change the function in the dictionary, why don't you simply define the functions you'll want to use, and change the one you have bound to the key in the dictionary when you want to...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
