First post, recursive references with pickle.

Hi everyone, this is my first post to this group, so please be gentle.

I've written a class which, when I attempt to pickle, gives the error:

*** RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded

Is there a way to make pickle display data about what it's trying
to do? I'm thinking that if so, the recursive component will be
immediately visible, easing the bug hunt.

Any help would be appreciated.

BR,

Mark.

How about commenting out one by one the attributes of the object
you're trying to pickle until you find the problematic one(s) ?
Something like:

class MyClass(object) :
...
def __getstate__(se lf):
del self.foo
return self.__dict__

Then do the same to the class of self.foo, and so on recursively,
until you find the real culprit.

HTH,

Hi, under python 2.2, the pickle/unpickle sequence incorrectly restores a larger data structure I have. Under Python 2.3, these structures now give an explicit exception from Pickle.memoize(): assert id(obj) not in self.memo I'm shrinking the offending data structure down to find the problem

Hi, I encountered garbage collection behaviour that I didn't expect when using a recursive function inside another function: the definition of the inner function seems to contain a circular reference, which means it is only collected by the mark-and-sweep collector, not by reference counting. Here is some code that demonstrates it: ===...
