[Python-Dev] Variable Scope

I have a 2 Python scripts that contain the following lines:

from testmod import *
a1 = 10

def modfunc():
    print a1

When I run test.py, it returns the following error:

  File "testmod.py", line 2, in modfunc
    print a1
NameError: global name 'a1' is not defined

My intent is to make a1 a global variable - so that I can access its value
in all functions of imported modules. What should I do?

Thanks in advance,
