Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting Python: Refer a properties file from different location Post 303041206 by Neo on Monday 18th of November 2019 06:21:52 AM
I don't think you need to use append, to be honest:

Code:
sys.path

Quote:
A list of strings that specifies the search path for modules. Initialized from the environment variable PYTHONPATH, plus an installation-dependent default.

As initialized upon program startup, the first item of this list, path[0], is the directory containing the script that was used to invoke the Python interpreter. If the script directory is not available (e.g. if the interpreter is invoked interactively or if the script is read from standard input), path[0] is the empty string, which directs Python to search modules in the current directory first. Notice that the script directory is inserted before the entries inserted as a result of PYTHONPATH.

A program is free to modify this list for its own purposes. Only strings and bytes should be added to sys.path; all other data types are ignored during import.
According, this may work (sorry, did not test it), if ("/path/to/config") is the full path:

Code:
sys.path("/path/to/config")
