The python equivalent is

import xxx

#use it, assuming the doSomething() function is defined in module xxx:
xxx.doSomething()

If you already know a programming language, the tutorial that comes with the
python distribution is a good starting point to learn the language.
Good luck!

Have you gone through the several tutorials and web pages for newcomers?

Questions like this should be adequately covered in them, so it would
be surprising if you've read them yet still don't know about "import".

There is no raw-file include (as in C's cpp) in the Python language.
(Of course, you could use #include and run cpp on the file
before passing it to Python.)

The Pythonic way to do this is "import". Unlike cpp, the imported
file must be a valid python module in its own right, though it can be
pretty simplistic. E.g., you could just define a list.
