some functions are always available--the built-in functions.
(from elsewhere) everything in python is an object.
hey, from abs() to zip() there's type() and super() and str()
and setattr() and ... dir() and... they're the built-ins
my question: what.abs() what.zip() etc.?
I think there must be a base object, a la java or Nextstep,
that supports these functions. what is it?
maybe it's not practical, but it's driving me nuts anyway.
thanks in advance.
