Self-help #1: reading the documentation: http://www.python.org/doc/2.0/lib/string-methods.html
Change "0" to "5" to get the latest released version -- which hasn't
changed the description of the join method AFAICT.
Self-help #2: help() at the interactive prompt:
Python 2.2.3 (#42, May 30 2003, 18:12:08) [MSC 32 bit (Intel)] on
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
| >>> help("".join)
Help on built-in function join:
S.join(sequence) -> string
Return a string which is the concatenation of the strings in the
sequence. The separator between elements is S.
OK, I'll bite: This was "new" in late 2000 when Python 2.0 was
released. Where have you been in the last ~6.5 years?
