Project Description

Summary

Locate a python object (package, module, function, class …) source file.

Usage

pywhereis [-v] [-s] dotted_name...

CMD line Examples

  • The pywhereis script accept a package, module, function or a class

    $ pywhereis shlex
    shlex: /usr/lib/python2.7/shlex.py
    $ pywhereis os.path.abspath
    os.path.abspath: /usr/lib/python2.7/posixpath.py  337
    
  • You can pass more than one dotted-name to it

    $ pywhereis shlex inspect.ismodule
    shlex: /usr/lib/python2.7/shlex.py
    inspect.ismodule: /usr/lib/python2.7/inspect.py  51
    
  • If the name is a function, class or method the result will contain the line number where the object is defined

    $ pywhereis unittest.TestCase.assertEqual
    unittest.TestCase.assertEqual: /usr/lib/python2.7/unittest.py  344
    
  • It will fail localizing object that are not pure python

    $ pywhereis.py sys
    sys:
    
  • For more info about why the localization fail you can use the verbose mode

    $ pywhereis -v sys
    sys: Error: <module 'sys' (built-in)> is not pure python.
    
  • If it’s run with -s, –site-packages option the script will check first in site-packages instead of the default which is to check in the current dir first

    $ cd ~ ; touch os.py
    $ pywhereis os
    os: /home/mouad/os.py
    $ pywhereis -s os
    os: /usr/lib/python2.7/os.py
    

    Note: Option only available for python3.2 and below !

  • For python2.7 and above you can also do

    $ python2.7 -mpywhereis subprocess.Popen
    subprocess.Popen: /usr/local/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py 33
    

    Note: The above will only work if pywhereis was installed in that python version.

  • Of course you can still search in a different python version by running this script using that python

    $ python3.4 $(which pywhereis) html
    html: /usr/local/lib/python3.4/html/__init__.py
    

Code Examples

This package come also with a python package whereis that can be used like so

>>> import whereis
>>> whereis.resolve('sys')
<module 'sys' (built-in)>
>>> whereis.locate('os')
'/usr/lib/python2.7/os.py'

CHANGES

0.3

  • Fixing bug _issue#2: https://bitbucket.org/mouad/pywhereis/issue/2, This mean that user can install pywhereis once in any Python version, and use it everywhere i.e. with other python versions or inside virtualenv … , This work for now with only POSIX compliant system.
  • BUGFIX: Fix locating not pure Python modules, bug noticed when trying to locate lxml.etree.XPath.
  • Add support to Python3.4 and Python3.3.
  • Change versioning instead of 0.0.2 now it’s 0.3.
  • Backward incompatibilty change: pywhereis return now the real path instead of symlink.

0.0.2

  • Add support to locating zip archive and eggs modules.
  • Add a new argument -s, –site-packages that enable looking in site-packages directory before current directory.
  • BUGFIX: Fix whereis.resolve to always raise ImportError even if the module that we are searching for is broken (SyntaxError …), the same with whereis.locate.

0.0.1

First release.
