Yes, thanks. I'd read that page before posting. Helpful.

But, I still don't understand how python can access a function in a
file I have NOT included. In this case, to get things to work, I DO
NOT "import MMA.grooves" but later in the module I access a function
with "xx=MMA.grooves.somefunc()" and it finds the function, and works
just fine. It shouldn't work.

I have tried to delay the import, and that does work. But, from a
stylistic view I really to like to have all my imports at the top of
the module. Maybe some old assembler/C habits on my part.
