Please define what you mean by "path" (and how you hope to make use of 
this information).

Generally a module has a "path" (i.e. a location where it can be loaded 
from the file system) but classes are merely created by "class" 
statements within a module.  There is no one-to-one match with files, 
and in fact no requirement that a class even be traceable directly to 
statements in a source file.
