pydoc - I think Guido's time machine strikes again :-)
pydoc - the Python documentation tool
pydoc <name> ...
Show text documentation on something. <name> may be the name of a
Python keyword, topic, function, module, or package, or a dotted
reference to a class or function within a module or module in a
package. If <name> contains a '/', it is used as the path to a
Python source file to document. If name is 'keywords', 'topics',
or 'modules', a listing of these things is displayed.
pydoc -k <keyword>
Search for a keyword in the synopsis lines of all available modules.
pydoc -p <port>
Start an HTTP server on the given port on the local machine. Port
number 0 can be used to get an arbitrary unused port.
pydoc -w <name> ...
Write out the HTML documentation for a module to a file in the current
directory. If <name> contains a '/', it is treated as a filename; if
it names a directory, documentation is written for all the contents.
as it uses docstrings it should work well with any reasonably well
written module - (even your own)
... The prejudices people feel about each other disappear when they get
to know each other.
