Hi, all


In past I asked about module - inspect, that can't to get me prototype
of C-implemented functions ( usually all built-in functions ).


But, still I see that all Python Editors ( IDLE for example ) can to
show prototype of built-in functions - by tooltip. When you print for
example: sum(, you see what kind of parameters you must to enter.


So, how IDLE know it?


Thanks, Nadav
