so yes - package is in python's directory (probably somewhere in /usr , yes i use linux). file (python script) where variable'd be setted will be xyz.py in home directory (probably ~/ ). how can i make it so package will get variable contents and name to pass for inside functions?

What I have tried:

package (example, take its name as xyz.py in environment variable)

global x
file = open(x , "r")
extension = file.suffix
if extension == '.textmd':

    Bold = re.search('<bold>(.*)<bold;>', file).group(1)
    Italic = re.search('<italic>(.*)<italic;>', file).group(1)
    Underline = re.search('<underline>(.*)<underline;>', file).group(1)
    Crossout = re.search('<crossout>(.*)<crossout;>', file).group(1)

    # ... blah blah blah the rest of code

else:
    raise Error("invalid file !!!")


file im working in :

import xyz

global x
x = "testing.file"
print(Italic)


yes i know this example contains some other things but generally variables cant match.

Your code samples above are not clear.

Basically, you can't pass parameters to a package. A package is just a wrapper around a set of functions, which you can call after the package has been imported. You can pass parameter values to the functions, but they must be the correct type as the function requires. The documentation for each function explains in details.

Sorry, no. I still have no idea what your actual question is.
