Re[2]: import fails

exarkun@boson:~ $ cat foo.py
x = 10
__all__ = [x]
exarkun@boson:~ $ cat bar.py
x = 20
__all__ = ['x']
exarkun@boson:~ $ python -c "from foo import *; print x"
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in ?
TypeError: attribute name must be string
exarkun@boson:~ $ python -c "from bar import *; print x"
exarkun@boson:~ $ Hope this helps,

Definitely. However, it would be better if the exception occurred on the
bad assignment (e.g. __all__ = [x]) but probably it would be
extremely hard to implement. Moreover, you can add items to __all__ in
runtime. Well okay, this is not something humans do. :-)

Another note: the same code was working with 2.3.x, the problem I'm
having is only 2.3.4. - I should have checked the change log.

Thank again

Hello all, I have a couple of questions related to module importing. 1) When I start my Python program with `python foo.py` instead of simply adding a interpreter comment on the first line and do `./foo.py`, some "local" imports fails, I guess because current working directory is different. Is CWD the only difference between running `python foo.py` and `./foo.py`? What is the recommended way? (I guess security is one aspect that can...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
