Hi everyone,

I'm trying to figure out how I can make this bit of code work to open an existing script within a different script?

import c4d
from c4d import gui
import os
def main('C:\Users\Benjamin\AppData\Roaming\MAXON\CINEMA 4D R18_62A5E681\library\scripts	est1.py') :
    fl = open('C:\Users\Benjamin\AppData\Roaming\MAXON\CINEMA 4D R18_62A5E681\library\scripts	est1.py', 'rb')
    code = compile(fl.read(), 'C:\Users\Benjamin\AppData\Roaming\MAXON\CINEMA 4D R18_62A5E681\library\scripts	est1.py', 'exec')
    scope = {'__file__': 'C:\Users\Benjamin\AppData\Roaming\MAXON\CINEMA 4D R18_62A5E681\library\scripts	est1.py', '__name__': '__main__'}
    exec code in scope
if __name__=='__main__':

To execute a script from a file one can use execfile().

Note the user library directory can be retrieved calling c4d.storage.GeGetC4DPath(c4d.C4D_PATH_LIBRARY_USER).
