[SciPy-user] paths relative to a python package
Tue Apr 1 18:37:31 CDT 2008
I know this isn't scipy specific but...
If you have a data file that's distributed with a python package, how do
you refer to it relative to the location that the package ultimately
gets installed? Is there a package_root variable or something?
e.g. in my package directory let's say I have:
and within datadir:
How do I, within MyModule.py tell the program to open one of the data files?
If I just do open('datadir/data1.dat') it'll try and open that dir/file
relative to wherever the python program that imported MyModule is
running, right? Which isn't what I want.
Thanks for any insight,
