Yes Peter you're right I did mean sys.path.
I use some code from a tutorial in Linux Format magazine to get the test
in the subfolder to work as below:
import unittest
# Import from this modules parent directory
import os
import sys
sys.path.insert(0,os.pardir)
import BallLoop
del sys.path[0]
del sys
del os

Could you expand a little on your answer - perhaps using the structure I
used as an example?I tend to need a bit of hand-holding till I understand
the gist of what I'm shown.
Thanks
Lol ;-)
