What is a working directory?
A working directory is a location on your computer where you store files that you are currently working on. It is different from your “home” directory in that it usually contains temporary files or files you do not want to keep long-term. When you are done working on a file, you can delete it from your working directory without affecting your home directory.
What is a module?
A module is a Python object with arbitrarily named attributes you can bind and reference. Simply, a module is a file consisting of Python code. A module can define functions, classes and variables. A module can also include runnable code. In the example above, we created a module named mymodule.
Why is the working directory not part of a module?
There are a few reasons why the working directory is not part of a module:
1) The working directory can change from machine to machine, and from user to user. This makes it difficult to guarantee that a particular module will work in all environments.
2) The working directory can contain sensitive information (e.g. passwords) that should not be stored in a version control system.
3) The contents of the working directory are often transient and not worth tracking over time.
How can I fix this error?
This error can be caused by a few different things:
-Your working directory might not be set correctly. Check to see if you are in the correct directory by running the pwd command.
-The directory you are trying to access might not be a valid Python module. Try running the ls command to list the contents of your current directory. If the directory you are trying to import is not listed, it is not a valid module.
-The module you are trying to import might not be installed on your system. To install a module, run the pip install [module name] command.
