Okay, this has got to be homework, surely. This is the third, maybe the
fourth, question on this topic in a week or so :-)
In Python, the best solution to most "how can I check if X is a something"
questions is usually the Nike motto: Just Do It.
# s is some arbitrary string object
n = int(s)
print "Integer %d" % n
print "Not an integer %s" % s
try...except blocks are cheap in Python.
