Note that Zope does not use Python's normal import mechanism to load the source file for "External Method"s. One impact: you cannot use relative imports: Even if "nb_fetch.py" and "nb_parse.py" lie side by side in the same folder, "nb_fetch.py" cannot simple do an "import nb_parse" to access the other module. > ... >I have also made a number of attempts at adding directories to the PYTHONPATH, >but no success.

If you change the source file of an "External Method" *AND* you run your Zope in "development mode", then changes are recognized automatically. Chances in other Python modules (such as your "nb_parse" above) require a Zope restart. -- Dieter _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
