I always believed the best way to teach someone is not to give them a
direct answer. No. Instead i like to offer clues so that the person
can utilize his own problem solving skills to find the answer. Because
the most important skill a person can have in the programming field is
the ability to solve complex problems by breaking them down into their
smallest units; tackling each unit; and finally assembling the puzzle
in a cohesive and intelligent manner.

Anyway the OP may want to check out my recent thread regarding
Python's Built-in Functions.
