Datetime not working correctly

Hi there


import datetime dir(datetime) ['builtins', 'cached', 'doc', 'file', 'loader', 'name', 'package', 'spec']

Why am I not getting the same answer as the teacher, I'm using VS code. Regards, Gabriel

Hey there Gabriel Guerra !

I just tested what the instructor did within workspaces and within my terminal in VS Code to see what results I get and in both cases I got exactly what the instructor got.

>>> import datetime
>>> dir(datetime)
['MAXYEAR', 'MINYEAR', 'UTC', '__all__', '__builtins__', '__cached__', '__doc__', '__file__', '__loader__', '__name__', '__package__', '__spec__', 'date', 'datetime', 'datetime_CAPI', 'sys', 'time', 'timedelta', 'timezone', 'tzinfo']

I thought maybe it would be version difference, but I'm not exactly sure why you were getting the results you did.

Be sure to open the Python REPL when trying this.

If you'd like, you can write out the exact steps you performed to get these results, maybe we can figure this out :smiley:

hi Travis, I named my file datetime and it works now after renaming it. thanks ;)
