Alan, I note the help(foo) from the command line in Linux
gives me the 'less' pager with documentation.
>>>help(tuple) in Linux
gives me the pager with tuple docs.
>>>help(tuple) in the Windows interpreter just gives me an
error message. (NameError)
I currently have 2.2.2 on linux and 2.1.2 on windows.
any comments here Alan?
