The Python docs have an index. I STRONGLY recommend that everyone learn 
to use it. The index starts with a Symbols page.
The page may not be complete yet (I plan to recheck sometime), but it 
has an entry for '@'. If you do not want to search the page for '@', 
your browser find function (typically control-F) should find it for you. 
That entry takes you to

The Symbol index page was added to make knowing names unnecessary.
