Anyone else on a Mac having trouble importing swampy? I put it in my current directory, but still can't open it. I'm not familiar with how Python calls the modules.

    Python does look in the CWD for imports. Your import statement should mention the file name without the .py. Something like: import swam This will import it, but not into the current namespace. You'd need to call a function named foo as: swam.foo() If you want to import the elements of the module into your current namespace, the your import statement becomes: from swam import * then you can just call: foo()

    Thanks! I restarted the IDLE and it worked right off, so I didn't try your method. I've noticed the IDLE gets hung up from time to time.

    Work with it long enough and you'll notice it changes tabs to spaces too.
