having trouble importing a module from local directory

First off this is in unix.

I have a C file that has python embedded in it. In the script I have
the following

PyRun_SimpleStr ing(code);

where
code = "import mymodule"

however I get this error

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: No module named mymodule
Object not found
Segmentation fault

If i just run python from my local path then type "import mymodule" in
the python prompt this is fine. I'm guessing when I am embedding my
python script in the C code the local directory is no longer the
directory where my C code resides. How can i tell python to load the
module from my current local directory?

Thanks.

Try adding the directory where your mymodule module lives to the
PYTHONPATH environment variable before running your c program.

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...
