So, why does this not work then?
hey, does anyone know why this won't work for me?
and the easiest possible way to make it work? (simple and short )
when i run this code, I get "SyntaxError: 'return' outside function". I have also tried to leave out the ,test.__dict__ part, but still won't work for me.

think i might know why it doesnt work..
it does not appear like this is supposed to work.
http:// docs.python.org /3.1/library/functions.html#exec
now to work out a workaround.. :l

the print part works fine, but the return part bring up the error: SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Reason: insert code tags
[/code] are essential for python code and Makefiles!

I don't think it is possible to do what you're trying to do, but maybe if you could explain why you're trying to do it someone can come up with something similar?

thanks for the help, after writing a detailed explanantion on what i want to do, I realised how I could achive a solution to the problem myself.. sometimes it helps to wirte things out loud ;-) (my solution is to have a while loop inside the function which depends on a boolean being true, and then change the value of the boolean instead... so simple really :S)
