I have a lengthy Python script (for a ML project), and I want to use some results in a LaTeX report. Using pythontex, I import my project, and it properly displays anything printed in project.py (e.g. print("Hello World") prints properly in the LaTeX pdf). However, it does not preserve variables or function definitions - so I can not use a variable defined in my project.py within a \pycode{} in my .tex file.

Any suggestions for why this is occurring, or how to get around it?

Edit - added example:


i = 4




   Some text
      import code

When run as above, draft.pdf has Some text 3 1. If I uncomment print(i), I get an error when running pythontex.


OK, figured out a solution - using

from code import *

works (executes my code, and preserved variable and function definitions).

    You should also be able to access variables and functions with code.i, etc. if you just used import code instead of importing *.
