Anaconda site-packages

After installing a package in an anaconda environment, I'll like to make some changes to the code in that package.

Where can I find the site-packages directory containing the installed packages? I do not find a directory /Users/username/anaconda/lib/python2.7/site-packages

You can import the module and check the module.__file__ string. It contains the path to the associated source file.

Alternatively, you can read the File tag in the the module documentation, which can be accessed using help(module), or module? in IPython.
