I have some files that I want to include with a package of modules I
am working on. These are xlst stylesheets. From within the module,
say in the __init__ statement, I would like to do
self_.fh = open(the_path_to_foo + "sheet.xsl")
Is there a way to figure out where a package is installed from within
the __init__ statement. I know I can include the style sheet in the
package literally in a """ environment, but I find this more difficult
Is this a bad idea to want to do this?
I suppose I could iterate over the module search path and look for the
file, but that doesn't strike me as very elegant.
