Trying to replicate a Ruby Gem that raises a “did you mean” error when mistyping a method name, I hit a showstopper:

There seems to be no way to get the object which misses an attribute from an AttributeError.

I propose the appended patch (it might be completely broken because I’m not experienced in the Python C API, but I tried)

This is a duplicate of issue18156.

No, this is about the object which misses an argument, not the attribute name.

But thanks for the pointer: one combined fix for both would be the smartest thing to do.

See also PEP 473.

I think we should be pursued together with #18156, so I'm going to close this.  Serhiy already added a reference to this issue there.

sure, go ahead! i wasn’t aware of PEP nor issue, so sorry for filing a dupe.
