Python function in separate file: they all require the same parameters. How to make global variable  
Modified By Chris Adams  on 9/13/2020 6:03:35 PM)

My question is the following:

I have a script which requires around 10 input variables to run. Those variables are required in many of the functions I use. They are defined in the main file of my script.

Currently, all the functions I need are coded in my main file. Thus, I don't need to add in those functions extra parameters corresponding to those variables (because python functions can read "global" variable from a same file). But I would like to make my program cleaner by putting those functions in separate files. The issue with that is that all the functions would require in their definition those 10 input variables as parameters, which would be a big mess in the code.

How can I code this efficiently ? Again: I have about 10 variables in my script that I might change manually for each run. If I want to have my functions in separate files I would need to add 10 parameters to each of the functions. How to avoid that and to make my code clean ? My 10 variables are main parameters of my script and I want them to be defined in my main file.

If this is not the good place on stack exchange to ask the question, please tell me on which site I should ask.
