Function
zope.traversing.adapters.traversePathElement

Signature

traversePathElement(obj, name, further_path, default=<object object at 0x2aaaaab171b0>, traversable=None, request=None)

Documentation String

Traverse a single step name relative to the given object.

name must be a string. '. and ..' are treated specially, as well as names starting with @ or +. Otherwise name will be treated as a single path segment.

further_path is a list of names still to be traversed. This method is allowed to change the contents of further_path.

You can explicitly pass in an ITraversable as the traversable argument. If you do not, the given object will be adapted to ITraversable.

request is passed in when traversing from presentation code. This allows paths like @@foo to work.

Raises TraversalError if path cannot be found and default was not provided.
