Problems with import

Hi,

I have some problems when importing a library. Suppose I have a
directory /home/user/pythonlib/package in which I have a python-
library called test.py. Now I want to import that, so I put the
following directory into the PYTHONPATH: /home/user/pythonlib and in
my main python script I put:

from package import test.

BUT I get an error:

ImportError: cannot import name test

So how can I test and check what is going on, why python does not find
the library?
Thanks
Alex

Do you have this directory structure?

package/__init__.py
test.py
Only then (with the __init__.py in place, it can be empty) package will be
recognized as such.
