[wingide-users] Using import from *

Hi All,

This may be a daft question (I'm a newbie) but I am simply trying to do

import from ctypes *
print windll.kernel32

When I run this as a .py file in WingIDE or using python.exe directly, I

NameError: name 'windll' is not defined
File "d:\Users\Rob Thompson\ctypes.py", line 1, in <module>
  from ctypes import *
File "d:\Users\Rob Thompson\ctypes.py", line 2, in <module>
  print windll.kernel32

However, if I type the same in by hand into the interpreter I get:

>>> from ctypes import *
>>> print windll.kernel32
<WinDLL 'kernel32', handle 767b0000 at 1c3e230>

(It works!)

What am I doing wrong? Any help appreciated.
