Modules / Require / Include function

Developing different programs that use some of the same code I was wondering if python also has a fuction like e.g. php to include small code snippets at certain positions.

I've already used the module-idea (e.g. import graphModule and then using it with graphModule.blabla ) but it is not the same as just outsourcing part of the code.

Is there some command to do this?

Hi,

Python doesn't have a built-in way of doing this. You pretty much have to use the import syntax. You could try the following:
Code:
execfile('graphModule.py')
However I would recommend just using the import syntax.

Thank you for the fast answer.

Yes, execfile('graphModule.py') works. Why would you not recommend it?

Is the file called loaded from the harddrive every time I call execFile(File)?
=> slow down

Hi,

I believe every time you call execfile, python will look on the hard drive for the filename. I think Python optimizes this a little by compiling the script into a .pyc file, and using that on subsequent calls. I'm not sure if Python stores the code in memory for further optimizations.

There really is no harm in doing this, I just see it as a bad workaround to simply importing the module.
