Hello guys and I encountered some problems when using
My folder lists like:
In which, speed.zip is my self-defined package. My
python38._pth file content is
test.py file is purely print sys.path
when I run
python test.py, I cannot get the path I added in the
_pth file in the result. I have read the documentation but I still cannot understand how and when the file is included.
Is my way of using this file wrong? Or could anybody please explain how and when the file is included?
I have a
.pth file, no underscore, in
site-packages, where it belongs. The directory it lists are not included in sys.path. Rather, their contents are treated as if in site-packages. I am not sure where the doc for this is.
I believe that putting code is not recommended. There is an issue to disable allowing this.
Documentation for the
._pth file is here - note that it’s specific to Windows.
Note that none of the normal path calculation is done if the embedding application calls
Py_SetPath(). This includes reading a “._pth” file.
The more general documentation for 3.11 is in the overview of how
sys.path is initialized. In 3.11, “._pth” files are supported on POSIX. The new “Modules/getpath.py” initialization looks for a “._pth” file beside the library (probably not in POSIX), executable (maybe a symlink), and real executable. On Windows, it first splits off the “.exe” or “.dll” extension from the name of the executable or DLL when forming the name of the “._pth” file.
