Global Variables Over Multiple Source Files

P: 4
So basically I can't seem to get global variables in functions I import from a different file.

Also are the only scopes in python classes and functions?
Or is there a way to set your own scopes.
Like in C++ you can put {} brackets anywhere you like.

Not unless the variable is declared global, which makes it an attribute of the module after the function is called as in:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. import xyz
  2. xyz.f()
  3. xyz.f_var
Why not return the value of the variable? The use of classes with mutable attributes is my preference. That way you can have multiple variables directly accessible.
