How do I get documentation on Python?
All documentation is available on-line, starting at http://www.python.org/doc/.
The standard documentation for the current stable version of Python is also available at http://docs.python.org/.
The LaTeX source for the documentation is part of the source distribution. If you don’t have LaTeX, the latest Python documentation set is available by anonymous FTP in various formats such as PostScript and HTML. Visit the above URL for links to the current versions.
