Function calling another function

Hi all,

My question is surely a basic one, but somehow, I am not able to figure it out.

I have a python file "satish.py" as follows:
*satish.py*
def main():
y()
x()
def y():
..
..

def x():
...
..
y()

main()
When I execute satish.py, main() executes. I was expecting y() to execute first and then x() and then y() again. I wanted function x() to be capable of calling function y(). With this form of code, seems like function x() is not recognising function y(). Is there any sort of import or anything else that I can do here ??

Thanks in advance for your help

Regards,
Satish

Works for me:

def main():
y()
x()
def y():
print "y"

def x():
print "x"
y()

main()

gives me:
x
y
x

As expected.

Hi, I can compile and run this code (see below) which twice calls the function f, first with too less, second with too much arguments. But is it legal and free of memory leaks and other problems? Of course, I presume that inside f I don't access i in case it was called via g. int f(int i){ /* ... */ return 0; }

Is it possible to pass a pointer to a constructor or a class definition as argument to a function? Maybe in a way similar to passing function pointers...? The function should construct a number of objects using the given constructor. The objects should all inherit from a base class. It's not possible to pass actual objects, since it's not given on beforehand, how many should be created.
