__getattr__, __setattr__ and pickle

Hi!
My class with implemented __getattr__ and __setattr__ methods cannot be
pickled because of the Error:

================================================== ====================
ERROR: testPickle (__main__.TestDeffnet2WithBiases)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "deffnet.py", line 246, in testPickle
cPickle.dump(self.denet, file)
TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not callable

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Is there an obvious reason i don't know, which prevents pickling with those
methods (if i comment them out the pickling test passes)?

I'm using Python 2.4.4 on Gentoo Linux. The mentioned methods goes as
follows:

def __setattr__(self, name, value):
if name == 'weights':
j = 0
for net in self.nets:
w1 = self.wmarks[j]
w2 = self.wmarks[j+1]
net.weights = value[w1:w2]
j += 1
else:
self.__dict__[name] = value

def __getattr__(self, name):
if name == 'weights':
j = 0
for net in self.nets:
w1 = self.wmarks[j]
w2 = self.wmarks[j+1]
self._weights[w1:w2] = net.weights
j += 1
return self._weights

Greetings,

__getattr__ should raise an AttributeError when name != 'weight' instead
of (implicitely) returning None. pickle looks for a couple special
method in your object[1], and it looks like it doesn't bother to check
if what it found was really callable.
Yes, raising AttributeError helped. Thanks!

FWIW, you'd be better using a property instead of __getattr__ /
__setattr__ if possible.
You're probably right again, in this case it's better to use property.
And while we're at it, you dont need to
manually take care of your index in the for loop - you can use
enumerate(iterable) instead:

for j, net in enumerate(self.nets):
w1 = self.wmarks[j]
w2 = self.wmarks[j+1]
self._weights[w1:w2] = net.weights
return self._weights
Sometimes i use manual handling of index because i'm convinced that
enumeration is a bit slower than this. But i'm not really sure about it...

Thanks again.

Another option is to define __getstate__ on your class:

def __getstate__(self): return vars(self)
