Hi,
When I import the random module at the python interpreter, it works
fine:
>>> import random
>>> x = random.randint(1,55)
>>> print x
14
>>>

BUT, when I put the same code in a python script:
* random.py:

import random

x = random.randint(1,55)
print x

and run it at the command line, I get:
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File p:\temp\random.py, line 7, in ?
      import random
   File p:\temp\random.py, line 8, in ?
      x = random.randint(1,55)
AttributeError: 'module" object has no attribut 'randint'

I run scripts at the command line everyday so there must be something
specifically
wrong with the "random" module, unless I'm totally missing something
here.

Any ideas?
Thanks,
R.D.
