yet 'nother newbie question

When passing an argument to a function etc. -- how does one determine
that it is
an integer that is being passed and not a string for example... Is there
available to determine it's type. The only way I can figure is to use
'except' for a partial solution:
x = x + "" # suceeds then its a string -- if so
x = string.atoi(x)
x = x + 0 #This sort of partially ensures that int is passed.....
or if you have the reverse situation?...
Hmmm -- It seems python knows the difference internally, how can I
types and work with variables without having to resort to exception
Hope this makes sense... Thanks.....
