New to Python: Do we have the concept of Hash in Python?

Hi,



I am new to Python, with C#/Java background



Is there any built-in Hash implementation in Python? I am looking for a 
container that I can access to it's items by name. Something like this:



Print container["memeberName"]





I am asking this because I learned that DB-API in Python doesn't offer 
access to cursor columns by name. The only option is access by index. I hope 
that I've got it wrong!



I learned Ruby perfectly supports that.





Thank you,

Alan
