- astropy.utils.introspection.resolve_name(name, *additional_parts)¶
Resolve a name like
module.objectto an object and return it.
This ends up working like
from module import objectbut is easier to deal with than the
__import__builtin and supports digging into submodules.
A dotted path to a Python object–that is, the name of a function, class, or other object in a module with the full path to that module, including parent modules, separated by dots. Also known as the fully qualified name of the object.
- additional_partsiterable, optional
If more than one positional arguments are given, those arguments are automatically dotted together with
If the module or named object is not found.
