We're back after a server migration that caused effbot.org to fall over a bit harder than expected. Expect some glitches.

callable

callable(object) => bool

Returns true if the object argument appears callable, false if not. If this returns true, it is still possible that a call fails, but if it is false, calling object will never succeed. Note that classes are callable (calling a class returns a new instance); class instances are callable if they have a __call__ method.
