I am trying to use the
import random statement in python, but it doesn’t appear to have any methods in it to use.
Am I missing something?
You probably have a file named random.py or random.pyc in your working directory. That’s shadowing the built-in random module. You need to rename random.py to something like my_random.py and/or remove the random.pyc file.
To tell for sure what’s going on, do this:
>>> import random >>> print random.__file__
That will show you exactly which file is being imported.
