    Python Problems
    I'm very new to python... ran into this error


    import urllib
    proxies = proxies={'http': ''}
    filehandle = urllib.urlopen('', proxies=proxies)


    AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'read'

    The problem is in the proxies variable... running without it (proxies=None) generates no error. Anyone know python?
    p.s. I took this code straight off the python website describing the urllib module... so it *should* work...

    This went away when I upgraded my version of python.

    Nice to know - I have not yet tried Python...

    I've only used it for a few days now, and I already feel pretty comfortable in it. It's very easy to use. It used to be if I had something to do that I couldn't do by hand (like say... decrypting an encypted message, or processing a file) I would write up a little terminal C++ program to do it for me, but now that I've used python that seems ridiculous. Python is not only a thousand times easier to do anything I could ever do in C++ (aside from real development), but it also makes stuff that would have been very difficult... such as http operations...very easy. I'd recommend it, you can pick it up in a few days.

    Oh, and make sure you update first.
