Quick clarification question, then.
What do you call a single file which is placed in
and referenced via 'import something'
and what do you call a set of files contained in a directory
named 'something_else', placed in
and contains the __init__.py to tell Python that this importable via
Is something == 'module' and something_else == 'package' ?
If so, I want to change my name for the first (currently is 'classes',
for lack of a better word) and the second from 'module' to 'package'.
