variable to be transmitted from a CGI script to a module

jcj
hello,
is it possible to have something like :

script.cgi
#!/usr/local/bin/python
# -*-python-*-
global MY_VARIABLE
MY_VARIABLE = "myvalue"
import module1
module1.my_func tion()

module1.py
# -*-python-*-
global MY_VARIABLE
if MY_VARIABLE:
print 'variable defined'
else:
print 'variable NOT defined'
def my_function():
print 'my_function'

when I try to compile the module, I obtain this message :
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in ?
File "module1.py ", line 3, in ?
if MY_VARIABLE:
NameError: global name 'MY_VARIABLE' is not defined

same error when executing the python CGI script

thanks in advance

as the goal is to pass a parameter to a module, I found a way using
the OS environment :

in the cgi, I do like a putenv :
os.environ['MY_UNIX_VARIAB LE'] = 'myvalue'

in the module, I do like a getenv :
MY_PYTHON_VARIA BLE = os.environ['MY_UNIX_VARIAB LE']

you're right, the proper solution is :

import sys
print sys.modules['__main__'].myVariable

thanks a lot

Python has a few issues many consider problems with regard to its variable namespacing. It seems that the local/global/builtins namespacing rules are ancient remnants of a different Python. While function-level, module-level and "builtin-level" variables are still needed, I suggest a few different lookup schemes, with different levels of extremity:

I have a project that contains a usercontrol, some forms and a module. The only thing in the module is one variable that is there so that it can be used by the control and all the forms.
