Q: How to use long names in python for windows
I'm on Win95, I've downloaded python 1.5.1 and pythonwin (123 I
think). I've been using pythonwin for development and that works
great. Now, I want to create a set of batch files to run processes
for me - I'm getting the following error from python:

ValueError: Module name too long

My import statement to the python interpreter is:

import SumHours.MonthOfFiles

This worked fine in pythonwin. In addition, I made sure to:

set PYTHONPATH=H:\PySources;H:\Python\lib

before starting.

Is there a problem with long file name support in python 1.5.1 on
Windows95? Is there some startup script I need to execute first to
enable long file names? I want my code to run properly on UNIX also
(which it does right now), and I hate 8.3 naming conventions.

Thanks and have fun! - Bob
