Hi fellow bangalore pythonistas ,

I am trying to do the following.

I have a moderately complex python module/application X, whose source code
i have access to.

I run X with the following command

python x.py <arg1> <arg2> ... <argn>


Internally, x.py callls y.py, which in turn calls z.py, etc etc

x.py ---> y.py ---> z.py ---> u.py ---> v.py

Is there a python library/tool/module , to which i give input the start
point of X, x.py
and the input arguments, arg1, arg2, ..., argn

and which can come up with the call graph of X

I have tried looking at pycallgraph[0], but havent had much luck with it.
0. https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pycallgraph

Any suggestions,advice, pointers welcome.

Thanks a ton,
ashish
