How can import class as library in IDLE or Canopy?

Hi there! Please help me to understand how to import class if I use different environment e.g. IDLE or Canopy? Is that Python 3 new feature or import a class as a library is possible in older version too? Thank you.

I get this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "<pyshell#1>", line 1, in <module>

from Monster import Monster

ImportError: No module named 'Monster'

Your file is probably named monster.py, so your import should be from monster import Monster. Notice the first monster is lowercased.
