Thanks for the links, I'll try installing docfindertab soon as I can.

I'm trying to read a property of a file and the description of it on the
plope site is too terse for me to understand. Here is my code:
doc=getattr(context, filename)

filename is a parameter passed to the python script, it the name of the
file I'm wanting a property of. I've tried several ways of specifying the
property and none of them work. The property is called user_name, its a
string. Above I'm using quotes to make it a string passing it by value,
I've also done it by assigning a variable the property name, etc.
I also tried it with the optional 2nd argument with different variables like:

I've tried not assigning it to a variable, all kinds of minor syntax
changes, but nothing I do works, it gives the same error:
Error Type: AttributeError
Error Value: manage_getProperty
