Jitterbug-Id: 283 Submitted-By: email@example.com Date: Mon, 10 Apr 2000 12:30:44 -0400 (EDT) Version: 1.5.2 OS: Win32 The python debugger (both Idle and PythonWin) does not undertand packages. Can run scripts from the command line that cannot be run in the debugger... Create package 'Test' in the directory "My Modules", add an __init__.py (empty) to the directory "My modules\Test", create file testfile.py with the contents... class TheTest: def __init__(self): self.i = 1 def go(self): return self.i Add the path to the Python path with the following file (test.reg)... REGEDIT4 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Python\PythonCore\1.5\PythonPath\TheTest] @="C:\\My modules" then try the following at the python prompt: import Test.testfile j = Test.testfile.TheTest() k = j.go runs fine right? Yes it does, now step through it in the debugger and you get... import Test.testfile j = Test.testfile.TheTest() #exception: attribute 'TheTest' k = j.go Does not appear to be realted to the class (you can change it to a 'function in a module' instead of a 'method in a class in a module' and you get the a similar result.) Debugger does not understand packages. ==================================================================== Audit trail: Tue Jul 11 08:29:15 2000 guido moved from incoming to open

I've added this feature request to PEP 42.
