Good morning/afternoon/evening all,

the following output and then the help> prompt.

Welcome to Python 3.3! This is the interactive help utility.
If this is your first time using Python, you should definitely check out
the tutorial on the Internet at http://docs.python.org/3.3/tutorial/.
Enter the name of any module, keyword, or topic to get help on writing
Python programs and using Python modules. To quit this help utility and
return to the interpreter, just type "quit".

"keywords", or "topics". Each module also comes with a one-line summary
of what it does; to list the modules whose summaries contain a given
word such as "spam", type "modules spam".
