Thanks for the responses to this query. I've learned a little more about 
working in the Python world.

One thing that struck me learning Python having been a long time Tcl 
coder was the difference between built in and library functions in terms
of level and location of documentation. I'm a Linux user and I'm used to 
either man pages or web based help. I did find the full text search 
available in the windows ActivePython distributiton the most useful but 
since that's not my main platform it doesn't help day to day.

Cheers,

Steve
