Is there a way you can have the user input something and have the module import a module with the name of the input.

Hope that makes sense. Any help appreciated. :(

I don't know. Have you checked the documentation (http://www.python.org/doc/)?

Interesting question.. got me fiddling anyways : )

newmodule = raw_input("Module to load: ")
mymodule = __import__ (newmodule)
So, for example, if the user inputted "sys" to load the sys module, you'd use..

print mymodule.version
..instead of..

print sys.version
