The "reload script file" menu item does exactly what it advertises - it reloads the script file.

To completely re-initialize the script engine you could turn scripting off, then turn it back on again.

However I found a similar problem with Lua, and with an extra line (similar to what Worstje suggested) it forced the module to be reloaded.

In case anyone is wondering, the Lua code is:

package.loaded.my_module = nil -- force reload

require "my_module"

For Python, if you can't find something similar, doesn't reloading the plugin work? That should give you a fresh copy. Failing that, delete the plugin and reinstall it. That would certainly reinitialize the script engine.

Ah, it's not a plugin, it's a script :/ Is there an easy way to do this? I'm writing my dissertation in MC and I wouldn't want to turn scripting off and on every time I change a few lines of code, while the automatic reload on save would be pretty handy...

Nick, unloading and loading again (not reinstalling) doesn't make a difference if I recall properly, although it's been ages since I tested. :( In essence, something hangs around in memory that says which modules have been loaded, and it won't re-read them. Somehow I suspect that the WSH-bindings (pywin32) are what make the sys.modules trick not work. But I'd need to do some serious testing to be sure.
