Modules have a name, stored in mod.__name__ . Try e.g.
>>> import os
>>> print os.__name__
Although functions don't strictly have a name, if you need a description
that includes the likely name (but it may be wrong), try str(f) for a
Easiest however would be to use a for loop over the names in dir(module),
then you alread know what the function is called in the module.
