In Python2 urlopen is part of urllib, but in Python3 it is part of
urllib.request. I solved this by the following code:
========================================================================
from platform   import python_version

if python_version()[0] < '3':
    from urllib         import urlopen
else:
    from urllib.request import urlopen
========================================================================
