It depends a bit on taste and custom, I guess. On Debian it's a matter of:
~# apt-get -t unstable install python2.3-doc (install documentation)
~# links /usr/share/doc/python2.3-doc/html/index.html (et voila)
For me pydoc is an indispensible tool searching through the Python
documentation, added with the Python Docs as generated by epydoc
On Windows you have the docs in the searchable HTMLHelp format. On other
platforms you could run an indexing tool on the docs (i.e. htdig).
-- That brings up a thought: I would have expected pydoc to come with a
search facility for the Python docs. Has this ever been attempted?
