The example usage give in the URL you quote is:

$ call multiply 3 2

Hint: does the example usage give a path and extension?
Does your failing use attempt give them?

I think the example will probably also fail when used
as documented, because the current directory is not, by
default, in sys.path for embedded Python -- I just posted
about this and the solution[s] in another thread, just
a few hours ago, so please look my other post up for details.
