"And now for something completely different:"
I have a situation in which I, from a CGI script written in Python, want to
instantiate a class, the name of which is known to me only at runtime
(because it depends on a CGI parameter).
Is it possible to load (import and instantiate) a class dynamically in
Python? I have a feeling the answer is Yes, but as I am unfortunately not
quite the python expert (yet :) forgive me if I ask something obvious.
Thanks in advance,
