Python Path Setting

Hello,

          I'm trying to find some detailed documentation about 
PYTHONPATH, paths.pth, lib/site-packages, sitecustomise and so on.  I 
know what they do but I'd like some detailed documentation about what 
gets loaded where and when.  However I can't find the documentation on 
this. 

    Googling for 'python PYTHONPATH' give me a bunch of stuff about 
setting the pythonpath for a specific app or about pythonpath itself but 
not the whole range of options as detailed above.

    However, I'd like more documentation about search paths, module 
loading and the like - does anyone know where I can find this?

Cheers,

Neil
