Python newbie help (please read)
In the book I'm currently using, I'm working on Module imports. I'm trying to import a module but I'm stuck. The book (Learning Python) has its code written for a DOS window, instead of the terminal, so please forgive me for quoting the DOS commands out of the book, instead of UNIX commands.
So I'm trying to import a script that i wrote earlier that's called "script4". The book says to do the following:
D:\LP3E\Examples> c:\python25\python >>> import script4 win32 A long string of numbers shows up here

I'm totally lost here. If it matters, the script is located at:

So when you import a module, the python interpreter will look for that code in a particular set of directories.
If you want to know where it will look just enter:
> import sys
This will show you all the directories where the interpreter will search for your module.
By default, this search path will include your current directory.
So as Catfish_Man said, the easiest way is to be in the directory when you start the interpreter.
Hope that helps.
