Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK. so split the 'cards' coding from the oldmaidgame code and then importing cards worked. but now i get CardGame not defined. CardGame is a class in cards. hmmm. any thoughts? much appreciated.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you don't want to add that troublesome cards. prefix, just do from cards import * to import all the classes and functions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wow, thought that was it. tried both import and cards. and both times got CardGame not defined. but this is CardGame in cards class CardGame: just like in chapter 16. doesn't make sense.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1may i get the link and code? if there is a CardGame class in the cards file, then importing it and calling (cards.Cardgame) should do it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I see what you did. makes sense. i'm getting no module named cards. just checked the directory. both files cards and OldMaidGame (yours and mine) are in the python26 directory on the local disc.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ah. i just changed to do import first and calling the OldMaidGame from OldMaidGame it self

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1import * means import everything in cards. though running it gives an almost infinite loop of them exchanging cards....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I copied your link and tried running it and got the no module named cards note i figured the from cards import * would take in all classes from cards. but it is asking for the cards module. maybe i should put the file cards in the oldmaidgame file before the oldmaidgame class.
