Let's say I want to write two modules 'addition.sage' and 'result.sage'.
I would like to import 'addition.sage' in 'result.sage'. How can I do this?
I've try the following, but it doesn't seem to work.

'addition.sage' file:
from sage.all import *

'result.sage' file:
from addition import add
print add(1,2)

my sage session:
sage: load('myPath/result.sage')

This gives me the error 'ImportError: No module named addition'.
Although, my PYTHONPATH contains the directory where my two modules are located.

If result.sage is calling add function from addition.sage, you need to load that file in result.sage.

You can also load the file without giving the path, if you type the following two lines in the beginning of the notebook

import sys

@Shashank Thanks Shashank.
