What do you mean by "more robust"? Faster?

comment:2 Changed 10 years ago by anonymous

The idea was that the code should check if the object is a dictionary before trying to access it as one, or check if an attribute existed before trying to acccess it. This because I was having problems with certain objects returning errors that were not being handled.

I later realized that stuff like:

"elif bit in dir(current): # attribute lookup" 

won't be good anyway since you might want to access attributes via some object's getattr.
