So, I'm fairly experienced with Python for shell programming, fairly
experienced with OO programming, but am just now using the one for the
I'm designing a class hierarchy, using Python package directories for
semi-discrete sets of modules; all Good Things if I understand
However, some of the modules need to refer to modules elsewhere in the
hierarchy, and I can't find how to manage filesystem paths elegantly in
Python 'import' statements.
|--- Package foo
| |--- Module ook
| |--- Module eek
|--- Package bar
|--- Module ork
|--- module urk
In ork.py I want:
How do I set up my paths the Right Way so that this will just work? How
will it be maintained when modules move around, get renamed, split into
sub-packages, et cetera?
These aren't in a state to be site packages; they're still undergoing
rapid architectural changes. Thus, using monthy.pth isn't an option
(unless you can tell me otherwise).
Any guidance appreciated as I tread this unfamiliar ground.
