Thanks a ton Josh.
I meant the flow of X starts with some function in x.py which in turn calls
some fuction in y.py( not using exec, using imports & simple function
calls), etc etc
Did you mean you have used pycallgraph but it took some massaging the
intermediate date before getting the pretty labelled call flow
Thanks & happy tuesday ! :),
