[Zope] External Methods newbie question

I don't understand your question regarding 'execute the whole file'?  Why can't you just put all of the python commands you want into an external method, then use a single 'main-line function' to call the 'sub-functions' as needed?

python has a command called 'commands' which can be used for executing bash commands.

  Subject: [Zope] External Methods newbie question

  I see I can only execute python functions in external methods. 
  Is there any way to execute the whole file, not just a certain function?  In linux I created a python script, and it doesn't have functions.  I just want to execute the whole file.  I tried using "self" or "init" for function names in Zope and it doesn't want to do it, telling me "The specified object, init, was not found in module, test."

  Is there a way to execute a file?

  (another question: is there a way to execute bash commands in linux? or is external methods only good for python?)

  Thanks in advance guys!!
