super question

Hi,

I must be doing something wrong, but it seems that the typical use for
the 'super' function, suggested in its help and in the python library
refernce, does not work for me.

Here's my experience with 'super':

>>> class b:
	pass

>>> class c(b):
	pass

>>> super(c)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#6>", line 1, in ?
    super(c)
TypeError: super() argument 1 must be type, not classobj

>>> super(c,c())
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#7>", line 1, in ?
    super(c,c())
TypeError: super() argument 1 must be type, not classobj

What am I doing wrong?

P.S. pardon the pun in the question's subject :)
