Hi, Simon

Thanks for your response.  But as I have written in my first posting, the
statement in other modules of

    sv = main_module.sv

only refers to the initial value of 'main_module.sv'.  When
'main_module.sv' is changed (to point to another object), sv is not
changed (still points to the original object).  That's why I wish python
has a reference feature like in C++ or Perl.


Regards,

Bill
