Import in Python


Import in Python

As noted in Structuring Your Project of Python Guide, import in python is rather tricky.

The style

from neuosc import *

grabs everything in neuosc and put them in the global namespace which is more likely to override existing functions in the global namespace.

A better way is to import the exact function we need.

from neuosc import par

Other good import methods are

import neuosc


import neuosc as ns
