RuntimeError: se excedió la profundidad máxima de recursividad (sin una llamada recursiva explícita en mi código de Python)

I am trying to read key-value pairs from an already existing shelf to create a new class object with a updated field and write that class object to a new shelf. My class object : SongDetails

This is the procedure which fails:

def updateShelfWithTabBody(shelfFileName, newShelfFileName):
     """this function updates songDetails with
     html body i.e. just the part that contains lyrics and
     chords in the tab """

 #read all songDetails
 shelf =
 listOfKeys = shelf.keys()
 #create new songDetails object
 temporaryShelfObject = SongDetails.SongDetails()

 #iterate over list of keys
 for key in listOfKeys:
     #print "name:"+shelf[key].name
     #fill details from temporaryShelfObject = shelf[key].name
     temporaryShelfObject.tabHtmlPageContent = shelf[key].tabHtmlPageContent
     #add new detail information
     htmlPageContent = shelf[key].tabHtmlPageContent
     temporaryShelfObject.htmlBodyContent = extractDataFromDocument.fetchTabBody(htmlPageContent)
     #write SongDetails back to shelf
     writeSongDetails.writeSongDetails(temporaryShelfObject, newShelfFileName)

Definitions for functions used in above code:

def fetchTabBody(page_contents):
    soup = BeautifulSoup(page_contents)
    HtmlBody = ""
            #The lyrics and chords of song are contained in div with id = "cont"
            #Note: This assumtption is specific to
            HtmlBody = soup.html.body.find("div",{"id":"cont"})
            print "Error: ",sys.exc_info()[0]
    return HtmlBody

def writeSongDetails(songDetails, shelfFileName):
    shelf = = str(' ')
    shelf[] = songDetails

SongDetails class:

class SongDetails:
    name = ""
    tabHtmlPageContent = ""
    genre = ""
    year = ""
    artist = ""
    chordsAndLyrics = ""
    htmlBodyContent = ""
    scale = ""
    chordsUsed = []

Este es el error que obtengo:

**RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded**

I couldn't find any reason why I'm getting this error even though there is no explicit recursive call in my code. I have seen this error in other stackoverflow posts, but they did have recursive calls in their case.

Que es songDetails? -

Oops, sorry missed that detail. It's a class, edited my original post to include its definition. -

to check whether it is a bug in BeautifulSoup, you could install a newer version: run pip install --user beautifulsoup4 y use from bs4 import BeautifulSoup en su código. -

str(self) llamadas __str__ o llamadas __unicode__ llamadas str(self).

My code works when I change the return statement in method "fetchTabBody()" from "return HtmlBody" to "return str(HtmlBody)". I assume this avoids the decoding of unicode text while storing it in shelf and prevents recursive calls as in case of "Unicode calls str(self)" as mentioned in accepted answer. - nakul225
