"constructo r" or initialization function for module

Hi Everyone,

An extended module (.pyd) written in C have an init function that is
called when the module is imported. Does anyone know if there is a way
to provide an init function for a module written in python?

Thanks,
Geoffrey

The body of a Python module is executed the first time it is imported
(that's how the functions and classes get defined: class and def
statements are executable), so just put your initialization code inline.
