I’m looking over the code for Python’s
multiprocessing module, and it contains this line:
from ._multiprocessing import win32, Connection, PipeConnection
from _multiprocessing import win32, Connection, PipeConnection
the subtle difference being the period before
_multiprocessing. What does that mean? Why the period?
Now we will see solution for issue: What does a . in an import statement in Python mean?
That’s the syntax for explicit relative imports. It means import from the current package.
