Reading from another file

How do I run a subprogram from another py file?

Hi @hyde36,

Can you please elaborate what you are trying to do?

hello , i don’ t understand what you want to do exactly but my idea is that you want to call function in another python file:
first : if your subprogram is a function and his name is toto() in totofile.py , you can call it in another file for example in anotherfile.py like this;
from totofile import toto. for more illustration see code if we are saying the samething
totofile.py:

    a = 5
    b= 7
    sum = a + b
    print(f"the first sum is a + b and equal to {sum}")
    return sum

anotherfile.py:

from totofile import toto  #call of fonction , from name_of_file import name_function

def dada():
    
    rest = toto()-5
    print(f" after calling the first fonction and subtract 5 to toto() function we have  {rest}")
    return rest


#the call of function 
dada()
##result  7

result:

PS C:\Users\Soldepromopub\Desktop\news> python anotherfile.py
the first sum is a + b and equal to 12
 after calling the first fonction and subtract 5 to toto() function we have  7
