Python Library Reference is a manual that documents Python's standard library, as well as many optional library modules, which may or may not be available, depending on whether the underlying platform supports them and on the configuration choices made at compile time. The reference also documents the standard types of the language and its built-in functions and exceptions, many of which are not or incompletely documented in the Reference Manual. This volume is designed to be a handy desktop companion, saving you the time and expense of printing the documentation yourself. It is also useful when viewing the online version of the Python documentation is inconvenient.
