Python: Find the location of Python module sources

Python Basic: Exercise-146 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the location of Python module sources.

Sample Solution:

Location of Python module sources:

Python Code:

import imp
print("Location of Python os module sources:")
print("\nLocation of Python sys module sources:")

Sample Output:

Location of Python os module sources:
(<_io.TextIOWrapper name='/usr/lib/python3.6/os.py' mode='r' encoding='utf-8'>, '/usr/lib/python3.6/os.py', ('.py', 'r', 1))

Location of Python sys module sources:
(<_io.TextIOWrapper name='/usr/lib/python3.6/datetime.py' mode='r' encoding='utf-8'>, '/usr/lib/python3.6/datetime.py', ('.py', 'r', 1))

List of directories of specific module:

Python Code:

import os
print("\nList of directories in os module:")
print("\nList of directories in sys module:")
import sys

Sample Output:

List of directories in os module:
<module 'posixpath' from '/usr/lib/python3.6/posixpath.py'>

List of directories in sys module:
['/tmp/sessions/9ab477032ea1081a', '/trinket/python3', '/usr/lib/python36.zip', '/usr/lib/python3.6', '/usr/lib/python3.6/lib-dynload', '/usr/local/lib/python3.6/dist-packages', '/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages']
