everything relative to that directory.

The Python equivalent of $PATH (sys.path) shouldn't be relevant. When
you give a file name on the command line like that, it's resolved using
the perfectly normal rules for opening a relative path in any program -
that is, it's resolved relative to the current working directory.
Does "cat vna.py" in the very same context work?
(That said, I would normally expect the following output when the given
file name is missing: "python3: can't open file 'vna.py': [Errno 2] No

copying and pasting error messages, or maybe this device has a weird
