I have two python script the first once contains my def callers and my command line arguments. The second one contains my defs that i want to use the command line arguments in. I was wondering if there was a way to call the command line arguments into the second script cause they do call some of the items that are needed in the second one from the comman line.

Your explanation is unclear. I don't think there is an issue. For example if the first file contains

args = parser.parse_args()

you can later call foo(args) and it doesn't matter if function foo() was defined in the first or the second script.

ok thats what i was looking to do is call my args into my second script that way all i had to to on the command line is type test.py 1 2 3 and so that it can simplify my code that has teh defs in it .

The second py is the one that im wanting to add the arguments from the first one

This is not a short example. I don't see where you need the args in the second script. I suggest another solution: write a third module, say handleargs.py

# handleargs.py

parser = argparse.ArgParser(...)
...
args = parser.parse_args()

then in first.py and second.py:

from handleargs import args
# now use args
