A python script to interate through articles
How-To Posted by David Benko on Wednesday January 29, 11:23AM, 2003
from the dept.
I'm trying to write a python script that simply interates through all the articles in a squishdot site and just prints the fields out. Help!

I realise this appears to be useless, but I'm trying to learn python, how the zodb works and how squish works in one fell swoop. I figure if I can do this then I can programmatically access the data and then send it elsewhere, ie a relational database.

My problem is I don't appear to be getting anywhere, can anyone help. The absence of a script to do this suggests I'm possibly barking up the wrong tree or approaching it from the wrong angle. Please help!
