Today’s coding reminded me why avoid __getattr__ in Python. FYI, a class that implements a __getattr__ method overrides the member access operator “.”  So simply referencing object.member invokes object.__getattr__( member). A typical debugging technique in Python is to litter code with print object.member. Guess what happens if you use that debugging technique inside a __getattr__ method ?  Like, duh ?!  😉
