I have a problem with execfile:

Python 1.5.2 (#2, Jul  7 1999, 09:18:40) [C] on sunos5
Copyright 1991-1995 Stichting Mathematisch Centrum, Amsterdam
>>> def x():
...     execfile("ZustandsDaten.dat")
...     print dir()
...     print Tiefgang
>>> x()
['Pitch', 'Tiefgang', 'U', '__doc__', 'array', 'n']
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "<stdin>", line 4, in x
NameError: Tiefgang

Why is Tiefgang unknown in the function x?
