execfile return values

Hello all!
I've a little and no important question:
Suppose 2 scripts

##ex.py###
a=execfile('scr .py')
print "return value: ", a

##scr.py###
print "i'm scr.py"

Executing that, a takes None value.
Is there a way to handle the execution of the script ordered by the execfile
statement??

Another way that def & return in functions.

Thanks

Enrique (Madrid)

As documented in Lib Ref 2.1 Built-in Functions. If you have not read
the execfile doc, please do, or reread. If you have read (or reread),
tell us what part you do not understand.

execfile statement??

I do not understand 'handle the execution of'. What you are trying to
accomplish that did not happen?

At a guess, I'd say he wants 'a' to have the contents of stdout ("i'm
scr.py").

I need to execfile() from a function in order to set value for a global variable from inside the executed file. I know there are "globals" and "locals" optional arguments for execfile, but I just can't figure out how to use them correctly. Here is an example: Change.py ========= x = 555 Main.py

In doing the extension to the python debugger which I have here: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=61395&package_id=175827 I came across one little thing that it would be nice to get done better. I notice on stack traces and tracebacks, an exec or execfile command appears as a stack entry -- probably as it should since it creates a new environment. However the frame information for exec or execfile looks like this:...

I maintain a few configuration files in Python syntax (mainly nested dicts of ints and strings) and use execfile() to read them back to Python. This has been working great; it combines the convenience of pickle with the readability of Python. So far each configuration is contained in a single standalone file; different configurations are completely separate files. Now I'd like to factor out the commonalities of the different...
