     77== Topdl Class Features ==
     78
     79All topdl classes implement the following methods:
     80
     81 {{{set_attribute(self, key, value)}}}::
     82   Attach an user-defined attribute with the given key and value to this object; value and key are strings.  The method includes a key/value pair (encoded as an [TopdlLibrary#Attribute attribute object]) into the {{{attribute}}} member of the object.  If an attribute with the given key exists, it is overwritten.
     83   This method accesses the attribute member of the given object, not any named members. Objects that do not have an {{{attribute}}} member silently discard the operation.
     84 {{{get_attribute(self, key)}}}::
     85   Return the attribute of this object with the given key.  The attribute - a string - is returned.  If no such attribute exists, or the object has no {{{attribute}}} member, return None.
     86 {{{remove_attribute(self, key)}}}::
     87   If an attribute with the given key exists, remove it.
     88 {{{clone(self)}}}::
     89   Returns a deep copy of this object.
     90 {{{to_dict(self)}}}::
     91   Return the object as a python dict.  No copies are made, so make modifications with caution.
     92 {{{to_xml(self)}}}::
     93   Return the XML encoding (from the topdl language) of this object (and nested objects)

    7895== Computer Class ==
     
    108125   A list of strings that describe the valid operations on the machine.  These are generally used by the federation system, and their definition is somewhat in flux.The list may be empty.
