Python error "Python NameError: global name 'Thread' is not defined"

0 votes

I have a file with python code called thread.py. I get the following error when i try to execute it:

Python NameError: global name 'Thread' is not defined

When I change the name to anything else like example1.py, it works perfectly fine. What is the problem?

There is a built-in function with the name thread and hence you cannot that as a filename. Change the filename to anything else and it should work.
