Python Library Reference - question

P: n/a
The "Python LIbrary Reference" at
http://docs.python.org/lib/contents.html seems to be an important
document. I have two questions

Q1. How do you search inside "Python LibraryReference" ? Does it exist
in pdf or chm form?

Q2. In some other languages (for instance PHP if I recall correctly)
readers can add comments and give examples to the various headings in
the reference manual. This gives valuable information to the reader. Is
there such a version of "Python Library Reference", and if not would it
be a good idea to have such a version.

Thanks
Bob Ueland

Yeah. You should install windows version. There is a chm form document.

I don't know.

One other option. Go to google and use:

site:docs.python.org inurl:lib

That should work, though I haven't tested it thoroughly.

I use Google:

site:docs.python.org/lib foo bar

Note that Google is pretty flexible about what is a "site".
"docs.python.org/lib", "docs.python.org", and "python.org" are all
"sites", so you can zoom in and out as needed.

The other suggestions look good, too.
