Re: Custom Classes?

I have the following code which produces a file every time I need to

of better than this, but the last time I asked for help on it, I got
no responses. Is this only possible with custom classes? Please, give
me some guidance here!

Once again, you've posted code that doesn't work. Your outer try block
is never terminated, and w is never initialized (so will raise an
exception inside your try block, which you probably won't see, if you
catch all exceptions. Generally speaking, unless you know what you're
trying to catch, it's better to leave off the try/except block,
*especially* during development. Stack traces are full of good

Second, you never initialize w, which causes the following problem.

$ python
Python 2.3.4 (#1, Nov 20 2007, 15:18:15)
[GCC 3.4.6 20060404 (Red Hat 3.4.6-9)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>w += 1
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
NameError: name 'w' is not defined
Third, double-spacing your code makes it difficult to read. Take out
blank lines, unless they add contextual hints which improve readability.

Post working code, and I'll answer your actual question.
