In this blog, we will discuss Python Import Error.

Python:-

Python is a widely-used, interpreted, object-oriented, and high-level programming language with dynamic semantics, used for general-purpose programming. It was created by Guido van Rossum, and first released on February 20, 1991.

While you may know python as a large snake, the name of the Python programming language comes from an old BBC television comedy sketch series called Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

One of the amazing features of Python is the fact that it is one person’s work. Usually, new programming languages are developed and published by large companies employing lots of professionals, and due to copyright rules, it is very hard to name any of the people involved in the project. Python is an exception.

Of course, van Rossum did not develop and evolve all the Python components himself. The speed with which Python has spread around the world is a result of the continuous work of thousands (very often anonymous) programmers, testers, users (many of them aren’t IT specialists), and enthusiasts, but it must be said that the very first idea (the seed from which Python sprouted) came to one head – Guido’s.

Python ImportError:-

In Python, we use “import” when we want to import any specific module in the Python program. In Python, to make or to allow the module contents available to the program we use import statements. Therefore when importing any module and there is any trouble in importing modules to the program then there is a chance of ImportError occurrence. In this article, we will discuss such an error which generally occurs if there is an invalid declaration of import statement for module importing, and such problems are also known as ModuleNotFoundError in the latest versions of Python such as 3.6 and newer versions.

Examples of Import Error in Python

In Python, when we want to include the module contents in the program then we have to import these specific modules in the program. So to do this we use the “import” keyword such as the import statement with the module name. When writing this statement and the specified module is not written properly or the imported module is not found in the Python library then the Python interpreter throws an error known as ImportError.

There are two conditions when the ImportError will be raised. They are

  • If the module does not exist.
  • If we are trying to import a submodule from the module

Now let us demonstrate in the below program that throws an ImportError.

Example #1

Now suppose we are trying to import module “request” which is not present or saved in Python drive where we need to download it. Let us see a small example below:

import request

Example #2

from crypt import pwd

Example #3

print("Program to demonstrate to handle ImportError:")
print("\n")
try:
from crypt import pwd
except ImportError as ie:
print("It cannot import module and submodule", ie)

Conclusion – Python ImportError

In this article, we conclude that the ImportError is an exception in the Python hierarchy under BaseException, Exception, and then comes this Exception. In Python, ImportError occurs when the Python program tries to import a module that does not exist in the private table. This exception can be avoided using exception handling using try and except blocks. We also saw examples of how the ImportError occurs and how it is handled.
