Hi, everyone, sorry to bother you, but i have got a question about
inspect.py and imp.py. As  a novice to python, i am glad to find the
inspect.py. But when i try to INSPECT sth. in imp.py, i got some error
The following is the interactive process from ipython.

Out[3]: False

In [4]: inspect.isfunction(imp.get_suffixes)
Out[4]: False

In [5]: type(imp.get_suffixes)
Out[5]: <type 'builtin_function_or_method'>

i am wondering why type of this get_suffixes() method is 'method', but i
cannot get the source by using inspect.getsource(). Can anybody tell me why
this is happening ,please ?

Best Wishes!
