problem with datetime

Relatively new to python. I can get the following to work from the
command line:

Python 2.3.4 (#2, Aug 18 2004, 21:49:15)
[GCC 3.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright" , "credits" or "license" for more information.
import datetime
d = datetime.dateti me.today()
d datetime.dateti me(2004, 12, 10, 6, 13, 28, 154472)


But when I try to run the following small program I get the following
results:

import datetime
d = datetime.dateti me.today()
print d

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "datetime.p y", line 1, in ?
import datetime
File "/home/bob/pyshow/datetime.py", line 3, in ?
d = datetime.dateti me.today()
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'today'

Do I need to change a path?
Running python 2.3.4 on linux redhat 7.3.

Change your script's name from datetime.py to something else. Otherwise the
script will import itself, and not the datetime module from the standard
library.

Thanks. That did it. And I know better than to use the module name.
