The above steps install your new module, named couchbase, into your default Python installation. With the couchbase module installed, Python should now be able to access the module. This can be tested by launching Python and trying a simple import command. The command will return quietly to the Python >>> prompt if it loads properly.
shell> python Python 2.6.7 (r267:88850, Jul 18 2011, 14:32:54) [GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build) (dot 3)] on darwin Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import couchbase >>>
If successful this means that all the files for the module have been properly installed and are accessible to your Python instance. Otherwise it will get confused and complain that your new module cannot be found.
