    >>> I believe the glossary
    >>> http://wiki.python.org/moin/PythonGlossary
    >>> is missing the definition for 'generator'
    >>> and has used instead the definition for 'generator function',
    >>> which term is missing from the glossary.
    >>> 
    >>> Standard usage as I understand it is found here:
    >>> http://docs.python.org/3.0/reference/simple_stmts.html#the-yield-statement 

Note that the glossary page is on the wiki.  Feel free to make corrections.

    wayside.  Not quite sure why.  -- Jim Thornton
