I can't find any info on this but when I try and create a zip archive in Python it creates a .pyc instead.
z = zipfile.ZipFile('test.zip', 'w')
The script you're running (or some other script you have) is actually called
zipfile.py, and so Python is actually first looking in the folder your script is in to find a module called
zipfile. When it finds this script, it imports that instead of the actual module.
Any time a script is imported to another Python file, Python automatically creates a compiled
.pyc file resulting in that
zipfile.pyc. If you rename your file to something more specific (and also fix your typo) you should be able to avoid this problem.
