Well, 2.7 only has 31 keywords most of which are easily understood,
as is the enforced indentation structure. Also, pipes and interprocess
communications aren't usually CS101 level classes. The libraries are
where things get interesting and where you should focus your attention.
https://docs.python.org/2/library/ is the official docs, but effbot's
guide, while old, is not entirely obsolete and still provides a nice
overview of things. See http://effbot.org/zone/librarybook-index.htm
and del from not while
as elif global or with
assert else if pass yield
break except import print
class exec in raise
continue finally is return
def for lambda try
