Looks like you have the classes bit figured out! :-)
> import dummy_class
But you have a problem with namespaces.
the class 'dummy_class' is inside the module 'dummy_class'
So when you import the module that allows you to use the
name 'dummy_class' to refer to the *contents* of that module.
To access the class 'dummy_class' you need to prepend it
with the name of the module:
d = dummy_class.dummy_class()
You can get more on this in the 'Whats in a Name?' topic of
my tutor. And more on OOP in the OOP topic - naturally! :-)
