Os.path.dirname(sys.modules[packagename].__file__)


#1

Hi,
I am having trouble understanding this syntax and the documentation on this is unlcear to me.

How would you explain what this code it doing?

os.path.dirname(sys.modules[packagename].__file__)

what does this part do?
os.path.dirname
followed by this part?
sys.modules[packagename]

Could you provide an example of how this may work?

os.path.dirname is pretty straight forward, it will give you the directory, for example:

os.path.dirname("/home/user/Document/file.txt")

will give you the directory (/home/user/Documents), i couldn't find the sys.modules[packagename] in any documentation about os.path.dirname
