I am getting very strange results from the following:
db = shelve.open(testfile)
list = 
cnt = 0
for id in db.keys():
the testfile was written with an class defined object;
What i am finding, is if I write 50 objects, the above code prints
only 38 objects, and there are odd gaps,. like,with the name of the
objects: test1, test2, test3...test50, the print outputs
test1, test3, test5, test6, ... etc with gaps in the file names output.
But using another function, that reads the files one by one, I can read all 50 object entries, so I know they are there on the shelf. Note when I read them one by one, I supply the id,
not from the "in db.keys()" method.
I have a feeling when you list a shelved set of objects, that scanning it
via "keys" is not correct, and that is why I am getting weird results.
Actually, when you think about it, what IS the "key", for a saved object?
There is a __dict__.keys for each record, but that implies multiple keys
within one record.
Man, I am very confused....
Well, then how DO you walk through a variable length list, that you stored
