Hi, I'm a fairly new user, trying to find a way to iterate over the attributes on a given point or prim in python.

Or at the least, determine if a given attribute exists. Any advice?

Attributes are strictly linked to the geometry, so you want to search through the hou.Geometry() class

You'll find both methods for retrieving the list of attributes and for checking the existence of a specific attrib;
