PyRun_String using my module in a def

What command do you mean when you say "update main_dict with

I tried PyObject *rstring = PyRun_String( cmd, Py_file_input,
dlfl_dict, dlfl_dict );
This worked, but has the side effect of not allowing other commands
like "execfile"
I was able to type that before, but now it just says "name 'execfile'
is not defined"

Thanks for your help! :)
