That wasn't harsh.  I answered 4 of your questions.

   39. pointer to the documentation on that topic
   30. no, Python uses a different style
   28. that question doesn't make sense for Python -- variables
         only have one type
   11. don't use eval (implying that Python has such a thing)

and spent at least as much information in responding as
you did in writing the questions in the first place.

I even explained why I found your post to be problematical
and left an opportunity for you to explain why my
conjectures were wrong.

Feel free to explain why we should put a lot of effort into
replying to your email when it seems you've made no effort
in answering the questions yourself, despite seeming to be
quite capable of doing so.
