I am an absolutely beginner in the world of computer programming. I started my voyage in this world yesterday by starting learning Python. I am reading an e-book on python here. That book has been written with examples from Linux platform. So, I felt this problem while going through that book.
I want to ask you that If I have a python script present in my computer at say D:\Python Practice\mytest1.py then what I should do to be able to use all the functions defined in this script in the Python shell? I mean what command I should run to import the functions of this script into my python shell.
In addition is there a way of starting the python shell from the directory in which my target script is present so that I don't have to write its absolute path but only its file name??????
Thankyou very much in advance!!!!!
