ImportError: No module named sax.handler?

Hello,

I'm lost here. When I put this line

from xml.sax.handler import ContentHandler

in a .py file and run it, I get the ImportError. When I execute it in
shell, there is no error.

Why?

Thanks for your help!

Why?
Because you have another module called xml in your path that is found
first and has no sax package in it.

Martin

Thank you Martin. Actually it was the .py file itself. I named it
xml.py.
