Have a look at the module `importlib` and especially its function `import_module`. Python knows about two forms of "import": "absolute import" and "relative import". An "absolute import" tries (in the usual case) to import from a list of directories, maintained in "sys.path"; a "relative import" (recognized via the module name starting with a .") relative to a package. Section 188.8.131.52 of "https://docs.python.org/3/library/importlib.html#module-importlib.util" tells you how to import a source file directly (independent from any context). -- https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-list
