Not sure I understand what you want here. A function call where?

Obviously there are function calls to handle "users" files in the source 
- see:


...however there's no single, simple call "to get the value of an 
attribute" because that's not how users files work. They're lists of 
attribute-value pairs to be checked and replied, with optional expansion 
and dictionary handling.

Perhaps if you explain what you're trying to achieve?
