[Python-mode] Tutorial on Python-Mode

Hello all,

I've been using xemacs for many things, especially LaTeX, and I would 
like to start using it as an editor for python. Unfortunately I haven't 
found much documentation on python-mode. The only thing I found was on 
the book: GNU Emacs and XEmacs, by Larry Ayers, but it only scratches 
the surface of python-mode...

Is there anyway I can find a tutorial or a few hints  (well, maybe more 
than a few...) on how it works. Just to name a feature, what exactly 
does "Mark a Block" do? I would imagine it might behave like 
"Ctrl-<SPC>", but on a block (i.e. if: else:, or something similar)
Or another feature, "Ctrl-c !" I get an interpreter, and many new menus 
(i.e. Complete, In/Out, Signals).

I'm a bit lost... I've been using Python only for scripting, but I'll 
probably have to start using it to analyze MD data from Gromacs.

Thanks a lot!

Best Regards,
