that tries to import a module named "py" from the package "utility".

the "global" directive in Python is used *inside* a function or method
to indicate that a given name is not local.
Python doesn't have "program-wide global" variables; if you need that,
create a support module and import that module everywhere you need to
access those variables:
# file: globalvars.py
sName = ""
# file: myprogram.py
