Refer to this as a reference:

It includes a tutorial and documentation on the functions and classes
in all the global modules, as well as builtin functions (http:// and syntax. If you have prior
experience with programming, you may be able to learn python from the
tutorial, but otherwise, I would highly recommend you get a good book
for beginners on python (;
there's plenty of them out there.
