Hi - I think this is a pretty basic question but it's never worried me
To improve my skills I'm reading the source code of a library written
by someone else.
I've come across a problem doing that.
Commonly a function is called like this:
The problem is that 'theclass' is implemented in a file called
nothingliketheclass.py so finding the implemention of foo is a bit
Now I can grep for foo and depending on how common the method name is
that helps ... or not but I'm sure there must be a better way.
Given an arbitary package is there some programmatic way to 'ask' what
file the method/function is implemented in ?
