The obvious way seems to be to import the test_vectors.py file,
which gives me
import test_vectors as x;seven_seg=x.test_vectors.get
as one possible "obvious" solution with 53 chars.
from test_vectors import*;seven_seg=test_vectors.get
has only 52.
And if you observe that their "test.py" file already does
all the imports we want, you can get to
from test import*;seven_seg=test_vectors.get
with 44 chars.
But I simply cant see how to get below that.
And I think this is not the wanted solution at all,
which is why I have no problem posting it here :-)
