I think, in short, the best thing for you
to do is to get hold of some introductory text [1]
and to try things out. If you're coming from a
straight C / C++ environment, you maybe have no
idea just how easy it is to *do* things in Python
(as opposed to theorise about how they might or
might not work).

Seriously, I've seen *so* many discussions go past
on this list, trying to explain how Python objects
work and whether they're like this or that, value,
reference, pointer, id, blah blah blah. Much easier
to get in there and try stuff out.

Good luck :)
