View Full Version : Importing Modules

Can I import a module from a sub-directory? Say I have my program in directory "a" with a sub-directory "b", can I import a module that is in directory "b"?

Assuming you mean in Python which judging by your previous few posts is probably the case, there are a few options, personally I use the method listed here,

Python Docs (http://docs.python.org/inst/search-path.html#SECTION000410000000000000000)

about path configuration files.

On Ubuntu under /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages I've added a custom.pth file for the directories I wanted to be able to import from.

Yes, sorry, I was talking about Python. It seems though, that if i were to do sys.path.append then transferred my applications to another computer it wouldn't be able to import the modules.
