Check the docs entitled "Retrieving source code":
Depending on what you want, you may be able to use inspect.getsource:
py> import inspect
py> import string
py> print inspect.getsource(string.split)
def split(s, sep=None, maxsplit=-1):
"""split(s [,sep [,maxsplit]]) -> list of strings
Return a list of the words in the string s, using sep as the
delimiter string. If maxsplit is given, splits at no more than
maxsplit places (resulting in at most maxsplit+1 words). If sep
is not specified or is None, any whitespace string is a separator.
(split and splitfields are synonymous)
return s.split(sep, maxsplit)
However, this won't work for functions you've defined interactively I
don't think. On the other hand, if you defined them interactively, you
can just scroll up. ;)
