I have followed the example in Core Python Programming (pg 403) re;
AddrBookEntry class.  If I type it in at the interactive Python prompt
everything works fine.  When I try to put the class in a file
(addrbook.py) and 'import addrbook' I get no complaints; but I can't
instantiate the class.  (Ie, john = AddrBookEntry('John Doe',
'405-555-1212'). I get NameError: AddrBookEntry.

Where did I fall off the track?

So you don't have to look it up, here's the class:

class AddrBookEntry:
   'address book entry class'
   def __init__(self, nm, ph):
      self.name = nm
      self.phone = ph
      print 'Created instance for:', self.name

   def updatePhone(self, newph):
      self.phone = newph
      print 'Updated phone# for:', self.name
