Learning which modules were loaded

I am rolling up a distribution of a program I wrote. It uses matplotlib
with tkagg so the bundle is HUGE (47 MB, 14 MB after bz compression). Is
there any way to run the program, put it through all of its paces, and
then inspect which modules were loaded. I would like to gather these in
a list and delete any others that py2app and py2exe attempt to include.
Currently, these (or py2app, at least) use dependency graphing and
icnlude everything belonging to pylab, matplotlib, and numpy by default.
I don't want everything, I only want what my program needs to run. For
example, some modules are imported by functions (in Pmw, for example)
that never get called. I don't want to include these.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Import sys, then look at sys.modules. It's a dictionary that contains
all the imported modules, but I suspect you'll find that it's much
easier to let py2app and py2exe determine what's imported than it is to
go through sys.modules yourself.

A quick question, I'm about to recompile PHP, last time I compiled it with alot of modules, thinking that this time I should not need that many. Is there any tool(s) that could run under the htdocs and scan the PHP and tell me what modules actually being use? Thanks.

Hello, I've created an archive import class (with the help of importers.py from the python /demo/imputil dir) which imports packages and modules from a dictionary. So far so good.

I am sorry if this is an inappropriate place to put this post, if so please delete it. I am wondering about a few things. Do you guys recommend learning C as a second language, as someone who already knows java very well. And what is the best way to learn C, books, tutorials, or what? Thanks, any response would be great.
