Re: 'around' method modifier does not seem to work
Message ID:
Hi Karen and everybody else,

Thanks for the tip, it works as expected, except when I pass the attribute
to the constructor.  In that case, I get the original sequence, and not its
parsed version.

I added a print statement to the 'around' modifier so that I could keep
track of how many times 'around' was called.

I noticed that the modifier was called when you set the attribute and
everytime you fetch it, but not when it is passed to the constructor. As
Buddy noticed, maybe it really shouldn't be.

No biggie, though, I found out that I may actually have to re-structure the
code and I'll probably have no need for the modifier after I do.

Again, many thanks to all!
