Yes actually I am a Sr Software Engineer. I am not an expert in one 
language. I am pretty handy in picking up new concepts and applying the 
concepts to meet business demands..
I am just reporting a valid issue. 
I don't ever get to code in python, but I really respect the language. 


In this case.
I need to automate the porting of tableau reports to different 
environments.
I found that Python speaks to the rest api....therefore I get to code with 
python. I haven't touched python in 14 years.

Normally I do not respond to these types of responses. Due to the power of 
relative anonymity on the internet, it just escalates out of control 
quickly and is usually not constructive.
I type this up, not with the intent of embarrassing anyone or aggravating 
consummate professionals.
However I can see this goes out to several  people and possibly people who 
are new to the language.
I do not want those new to the language or new to using forums to feel 
intimidated by jokes or negativity.
This response  is based on conversations I have had with new IT 
professionals on why they do not reach out to public forums.
I am a proponent for using public forums, I would like to see more people 
use them, even those that do not have thick skins.
Hence I responded.

Perhaps I should have fully explained where I got the windows help file 
that  would have been less confusing.
But if the list would have posted the graphic that I attached to the 
original email it would have more self explanatory

Bob if you can go to
https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-364/


And download the help file

 I have link below.

https://www.python.org/ftp/python/3.6.4/python364.chm

See if you can open that up and report back.
I am not able  however I can open the chm file that comes with python 
install. 


This is the graphic I sent.
Bob Should be able to see it but the list will not

Senior Software Engineer?
Seriously?
